Robertson’s Lectures on Economic Principles

  • Lord Robbins


When it first became known that Sir Dennis Robertson was editing for publication the three-term course in economic principles which he had given at Cambridge since the war, some may have thought — as did the present writer — that this was a pity and that the reproduction of lectures, however distinguished, was inferior to their transformation into a full-blown treatise. But, now that publication is complete, it is clear — as we ought to have known — that Sir Dennis knew best. For, with characteristic stylistic insight, he has perceived that by preserving the lecture form he avoids the necessity of all sorts of technical apparatus of little intrinsic interest, while permitting himself the liberty of asides, inappropriate in a severer framework, which lend much greater piquancy to the treatment than would be possible in a treatise.
