Meet the Author

Millicent Garrett Fawcett (1847-1929) was an influential political economist and suffragist in England. As a secretary for her blind husband, first professor of Political Economics at Cambridge Henry Fawcett, she gained expert knowledge of Classical Political Economy. Deciding, therefore, to write a book to briefly explain the important principles of political economy to beginners, she quickly earned recognition, independently of Henry, as a political economist.
