The British economist Arthur Cecil Pigou (1877-1959) was a major voice in economic theory during the first half of the twentieth century. After succeeding his teacher, Alfred Marshall, as the Cambridge Professor of Political Economy at the improbable age of thirty, he reconceptualized economics as a theory of economic welfare and a logic of economic policy analysis. In his time, the muse of history did not smile on this project. The fundamentals of Pigou's thinking were attacked by economists regarded as more innovative—Piero Sraffa, Lionel Robbins, John Maynard Keynes, and Ronald Coase among them. Misconceptions of his work abound.

This book attempts to demystify Pigou's life and work by reading his vast oeuvre as he intended it to be understood: as a pragmatic and historicist theory of policy analysis tied to changes in the British polity and economy.

Review:

“Its two authors are among the very few scholars who in recent years have paid a constant attention to Pigou’s economics ... . they are particularly qualified to provide a comprehensive and contextualised reconstruction of Pigou’s theories. ... a well-documented and detailed account of his economic thought. It is therefore an important contribution to the understanding of the academic and intellectual history of Cambridge economics.” (Daniela Donnini Macciò, The European Journal of the History of Economic, Vol. 24 (1), January, 2017)

“Completing the first ever book on Pigou is a notable achievement in itself. But the efforts Aslanbeigui and Oakes have put into collecting materials and exploring his vast oeuvre are simply outstanding. The book’s value as a biography is also high. This will remain an essential reference on Pigou for many years to come.” (Norikazu Takami, Journal of Economic Literature, Vol. 54 (1), March, 2016)
