This reply to James Fulcher's recent article in this journal rejects his claim that British capitalism in the 1980s was of a fundamentally different kind from what it had been from the 1920s to the 1970s. The rejection is on three grounds: first, Fulcher treats as changes in Britain's mode of production what are no more than changes in government policy within that mode; second, he ignores the extent to which secular changes discernible in the 1980s antedate the change of government in 1979; and third, he is led to exaggerate the significance of the changes which he sees through not recognizing the similarities between the 1980s and the 1930s.
