IEA research referenced in 'Wrong Side of History'

You Do Not Exist: an Introduction to Nineteen Eighty-Four, by IEA Head of Lifestyle Economics Christopher Snowdon has been referenced in Wrong Side of History, conservative writer Ed West’s Substack.

The piece said:

“No writer’s legacy and approval is so fought over as George Orwell, whose final – and most celebrated – work Nineteen-Eighty-Four was published seventy five years ago this month.

“The most influential piece of political fiction in history, such is the success of the dystopian novel that its themes have been recited to death by columnists, often by people I imagine he would have loathed (including me).

“…the great man himself is now often more cited by the Right. Indeed the anniversary was recently celebrated by the free-market think-tank the Institute of Economic Affairs with a new edition and an introduction by my friend Christopher Snowdon.”
