Dealer Notes
Roger Bootle is a British economist, columnist for The Telegraph and Chairman of Capital Economics, a macro-economic research company. In 2012 a team from Capital Economics, led by Bootle, won the Wolfson Economics Prize for finding a practical way to break up the eurozone.
The dedicatee is Doreen Newlyn, who was Social Studies Lecturer at the University of Leeds (1948 -52) and a member of its Staff Dramatic Society. With her husband, the economist and Africanist Walter Newlyn, she set up the Uganda Pilgrim Players in the late 1950s, the country’s first multi-racial theatre group. Back in the UK, Newlyn was key to the foundation of the West Yorkshire (now Leeds) Playhouse in 1968.
