Alfred Marshall

Alfred Marshall (1842-1924) was one of the most influential economists of his generation. His book, Principles of Political Economy (1890) brought together the theories of supply and demand, marginal utility and the costs of production[?] into a coherent whole. It was the dominant textbook in England for a long period.

He was a professor at Cambridge University, where his pupils included John Maynard Keynes.
