About this book


This book focuses upon the development of economics at Oxford after the establishment of PPE and the contributions of Oxford economists during the 'years of high theory' and afterwards. Students' recollections of tutorials and lectures, and their tutors and lecturers, along with examination questions and results, amongst other aspects of teaching at Oxford, are presented here for he first time. In addition, the many contributions of Oxford economists such as Harrod, Allen, Andrews, Hicks, Meade, Richardson and Steindl, including the staff of the Oxford Institute of Statistics, along with the story of the Institute itself, are dealt with. Unpublished correspondence, memoranda and papers are collected at various archives are cited to show that Oxford's contribution to the development of economics was equal to that of Cambridge.
