About this book

Introduction

Sir Austin Robinson had a career unique among economists. A close associate of Keynes, he began as a seaplane pilot in the First World War and spent two years in the 1920s tutoring a Maharajah in India. He was at the centre of economic policy-making during and after World War 2, and in postwar years was professor, editor, promoter of economic debate and economic adviser in many countries.
