Arthur Seldon

Arthur Seldon's interest in public affairs began as a pupil at Raine's Foundation School in the 1930's. A State Scholarship took him to the London School of Economics where Arnold Plant and Lionel Robbins deepened his interest in classical liberalism and Friedrich von Hayek introduced him to Austrian Economics. After war service in Africa and Italy and a spell as economist in industry he directed the academic work of the Institute of Economic Affairs in London for 30 years. He is an IEA Founder President.

He edited 350 papers for the IEA. He has written 28 books and monographs including: Everyman's Dictionary of Economics (with F.G. Pennance), The Great Pensions Swindle, Charge, Capitalism and Democracy.

"Arthur Seldon has, more than most of us, been able to combine realism in prediction with idealism in vision" J.M. Buchanan, Nobel Laureate in Economic Science, 1986.
