    Views

    I have attempted to tackle practical problems, whether on full employment, growth, underdeveloped economics, inflation, the effects of direct investment over

    seas, the selective employment tax, or the investment of portfolios. To do so, I have sought to combine theory with realistic data and to look for the factors which are quantitatively important, rather than those which are intellectually stimulating. I have tried to be pragmatic in my choice of methods for tackling problems and to be clear about the alternative position with which comparisons are effectively being made (and to be sure that it is a meaningful and consistent one).

    Favourite slogan for pupils and research colleagues: Tt is better to be roughly right than to be precisely wrong (or irrelevant).1.
