I love this, which came to my attention yesterday:
The attitude of the Trades Union Congress to finance and investment policy is primarily derived from a consideration of the effects which such policy may have on the conditions under which workpeople are able to gain their livelihood. We know from past experience that policies pursued by the Treasury, the banks and the City have had considerable influence over the general level of prices and employment and thus, indirectly, over real wages and industrial relations.
I love it because the TUC published that in 1944.
Not much changes.
