This biography examines the life and career of Sir Austin Robinson. Now the last survivor of the Cambridge economists of the 1930s and a close associate of Keynes, he began as a seaplane pilot in World War I and spent two years in the 1920s, tutoring a maharajah in India. He was at the centre of economic policy-making during and after World War II, and in post-war years has been professor, editor, promoter of economic debate and economic adviser in many countries.
