Corporatism describes the arrangement whereby government consults widely with relevant interest groups in order to formulate policies, especially in relation to economic planning. Corporatism was prevalent in the 1960s and 1970s after the establishment of the National Economic Development Council (NEDC) in 1962. This facilitated tripartite decision making between the British government, the TUC and the CBI. The New Right criticized corporatism for contributing to the nation’s economic decline by hampering market forces and giving too much power to pressure groups and trade unions. Since 1979 the Conservative Party has been antagonistic towards corporatism, as exemplified by the adoption of conviction politics, hostility to the European Social Chapter with its emphasis on social partnership and worker consultation, and John Major’s dis-banding of the NEDC.
