The report was also issued in yellow paper wrappers, leading it to be known as the Liberal 'Yellow Book'. It proposed a substantial increase in the role of the state in industry, and can be seen as part of the move by the Liberal Party, started three decades earlier, away from classical laissez-faire liberalism towards modern, interventionist liberalism. John Maynard Keynes was a central figure of the committee, and a major influence on the report.
