About this book


Robert Lowe's wit and brilliance made him one of the most admired and detested figures of the Victorian age. But he was also the only classical economist to become Chancellor of the Exchequer, and this is the first study of him by a fellow economist. It shows how as Chancellor he caused a riot with his proposed match tax and hankered to take Britain into a single European currency.
