Description

In this volume fourteen senior economists describe their early introduction to the study of economics and their contribution to the development of academic economics in Britain.

With experience covering a period stretching from the mid 1920s to the late 1960s, many of the contributors not only provide an insight into the role of university disciplines in the education system but describe their experience in wartime administration, or as government advisors. The interview format of the work makes for accessibility and readability in a sometimes arcane area of work.
