'That full complement of riches': the contributions of the arts, humanities and social sciences to the nation's wealth

This review by the British Academy, published in January 2004, marshals the arguments and presents evidence to demonstrate the wide range of contributions to the nation’s wealth made by the arts, humanities, and social sciences.

Our hope is that it will raise the awareness of policy makers regarding the vital role these subjects play in sustaining and developing the UK’s knowledge-based society and economy.

The review was chaired by Professor Paul Langford FBA.
