Nigel Lawson (born March 11, 1932), British politician, was the UK's longest serving Chancellor of the Exchequer (that is Finance Minister) since the First World War, between June 1983 and October 1989.
Lawson began his career as a financial journalist and progressed to the position of editor of The Spectator before becoming a Member of Parliament in 1974.
The trajectory taken by the UK economy from this point on is typically described as 'The Lawson Boom' by analogy with the phrase 'The Barber Boom' which describes an earlier period of rapid expansion under the tenure as chancellor of Anthony Barber[?] in the conservative government of Edward Heath.

 Book Review: The Downing Street Years by Margaret Thatcher and The View From No. 11: Memoirs of a Tory Radical by Nigel ...
Under the guidance of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, with Nigel Lawson as her Chancellor of the Exchequer from 1983 to 1989, Britain steered a course away from democratic socialism toward democratic capitalism.
Nigel Lawson’s The View From No. 11 is a workmanlike, interesting mix of recent economic and political history, an exploration of various economic theories, and analyses of fiscal and monetary issues.
Lawson states: “In advance of every significant privatization, public opinion was invariably hostile to the idea, and there was no way it could be won round except by the Government going ahead and doing it.” As any great leader does, Thatcher moved ahead on privatization based on her principles and was proven correct.

The heart of Lawson's case is the economic criticism of the IPCC scenario generation process which has been pushed by Ian Castles and David Henderson.
Lawson suggests that economic issues related to climate change should be discussed within economic departments of government, and I doubt anyone would disagree.
