Bauer, his life and work. Born in Budapest in 1915, he was a distinguished Anglo-Hungarian classical liberal economist whose distinction is better known outside the country than inside. Educated at Gonville and Caius College in Cambridge, he became a signiﬁcant ﬁgure at the London School of Economics, authored a number of books on the subject of developmental economics and became professor emeritus at LSE. He received a peerage in recognition of his work, and his unorthodox ideas on a range of economic questions have increasingly become accepted internationally. He died in 2002 at the age of 86.
