The IEA is delighted to invite you to an event marking the late Arthur Seldon’s Centenary.

About Arthur

Arthur Seldon was one of the most influential economists of the late twentieth century. His ideas were key to the changes in economic policies un Margaret Thatcher’s government – changes that were to spread to many other countries around the world.

Seldon was for thirty years the editorial director of the IEA from the late 1950s until the late 1980s. At the IEA he directed a publishing programme that included some of the world’s most eminent economists, among them Milton Friedman and FA Hayek, as they advocated radical and innovative policies, such as less government intervention, control of inflation by monetary means, and reduced power for trade unions. Seldon was a prolific author, and his Collected Works occupies seven volumes.

The event

The event will include contributions from Arthur’s sons Sir Anthony and Peter Seldon, as well as Martin Anderson (Arthur’s amanuensis and his successor as editor of Economic Affairs) and renowned economist Patrick Minford (author of the foreword to Arthur’s biography)
