Cambridge and Elsewhere: 1948–92

  • Alec Cairncross


When at last he was free to return to his university duties, Austin continued to interest himself in current economic policy and lectured regularly on this subject until his retirement from the chair in economics in 1965. He would spend Sunday preparing lectures to be given on the following Monday and fitting in his various engagements over the rest of the week. Some of these engagements were academic and related to Cambridge, others were scholarly but with no Cambridge connection and others again were associated with a long list of institutions some of which he helped to originate or nurse into life.
