James Meade, awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics in 1977, has, over five decades, written and published on theoretical and applied problems in most fields of economics. He has always been as concerned with problems of economic policy as with purely theoretical issues, and was one of the early British economists to serve in government.
Much of the work in these four volumes is previously unpublished and gives a fascinating and highly readable insight into the workings of government during this period in British economic history.
