"The first full biography of a major 20th century English economist who played a major role in the development of economics as an academic subject, especially at the London School of Economics, in economic policy, especially in Britain during the Second World War, in higher education in the 1960s and in the administration of the arts in Britain, especially at the National Gallery and the Royal Opera House Covent Garden."
The Economic Advisory Council, 1930-1939 : a study in economic advice during depression and recovery by Susan Howson( Book )

19 editions published between 1976 and 2008 in English and Spanish and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The experience of the Economic Advisory Council provides the relevant policy background to the Keynesian revolution in economic theory, and to the adoption of the principles of economic management in Britain during the Second World War. This study of this pioneering advisory institution against the inter-war setting of depression, financial crisis and recovery is based on government records, supplemented by other contemporary sources. The book deals with the political and economic origins of the E.A.C. in the post-1918 decade; the role of the Council and its committees of inquiry as the world slump began to make an impact on an already depressed British economy; and the part played by individual economic advisers in the dramatic events which led to the fall of the second Labour Government and Britain's departure from the gold standard in 1931. Throughout the nineteenthirties the work of the Council was carried on by the Committee on Economic Information, which helped to provide the National Government with solutions to the complex and novel problems of a post-gold standard world. In addition to assessing the significance of the E.A.C. experiment, the book reprints a number of reports and gives a guide to the relevant documents in the public archives

Lionel Robbins on the principles of economic analysis : the 1930s lectures by Lionel Robbins Robbins( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lionel Robbins (1898-1984) is best known to economists for his Essay on the Nature and Significance of Economic Science (1932 and 1935). To the wider public he is well known for the 'Robbins Report' of the 1960s on Higher Education, which recommended a major expansion of university education in Britain. However, throughout his academic career - at Oxford and the London School of Economics in the 1920s, and as Professor of Economics at the School from 1929 to 1961 - he was renowned as an exceptionally gifted teacher. Generations of students remember his lectures for their clarity and comprehensiveness and for his infectious enthusiasm for his subject. Besides his famous graduate seminar his most important and influential courses at LSE were the Principles of Economic Analysis, which he gave in the 1930s and again in the late 1940s and 1950s, as well as the History of Economic Thought, from 1953 until long after his official retirement. This book publishes for the first time the manuscript notes Robbins used for his lectures on the Principles of Economic Analysis from 1929/30 to 1934/40. At the outset of his career he took the advice of a senior colleague to prepare his lectures by writing them out fully before he presented them; the full notes for most of his pre-war lectures survive and are eminently decipherable. Since he made two major revisions of the lectures in the 1930s the Principles notes show both the development of his own thought and the way he incorporated the major theoretical innovations made by younger economists at LSE, such as John Hicks and Nicholas Kaldor, or elsewhere, notably Joan Robinson. He intended to turn his lecture notes into a book, abandoning the project only when he was asked to chair the Committee on Higher Education in 1960"--
