History[ edit ] British Economic Association was founded in response to changing attitudes towards economics in the s. Up until that point, the study of economics was typically taught as part of a broad curriculum, alongside subjects such as history and philosophy,  and those engaging in the study of economics came from a number of professions and academic disciplines.
Towards the end of the nineteenth century, there were academic movements to clearly demarcate and to define disciplines as scholarly subjects in their own right. For example, those in the fields of history and philosophy inaugurated such journals as The English Historical Review and Mind publications aimed mainly at their respective areas of study.
Economic thinkers followed this example. The same period also saw the revival of fundamentalist, socialist critique of economics. In order to protect the discipline from damaging criticism while still encouraging intellectual discussion, many economic thinkers strove to draw economics more decidedly within the realm of scholarly debate.

In an announcement to the American Economic Association dated which proposed the formation of an Economic Society in Britain, scholars acknowledged common criticisms of economics and the contemporary disunity in the discipline. They called for a society which would aim to advance theory, consolidate economic opinion, encourage historical research, and critique industrial and financial policy.
Palgrave had suggested creating a society specializing in the publication of translations and reprints of significant economic works. Certainly, Foxwell was not the only economist to propose the establishment of a scholarly journal in Britain.
The Economic Review was established by scholars in Oxford inthe year before the British Economic Association was inaugurated in London, and its publication, The Economic Journalwas set up. One of the reasons for the delay was Alfred MarshallProfessor at Cambridge.
Foxwell and Palgrave were keen to involve Marshall in the development of the association and its publication. Marshall was fully supportive of their plans, but as preparations progressed, he became preoccupied in completing his Principles of Economics. His former pupil, Edward Gonner, tried to encourage Marshall to participate in discussions to finalise the society but was unable to drive Marshall to action.
He remarked to Foxwell that: Of course, I know he will be glad if such be done and I am sure he will render assistance but he will not take the initiative.
Marshall was only drawn back into the discussion when proposals for the nature of the society did not meet his approval. Nature of the society[ edit ] There had been much debate about what kind of society should be formed.
Palgrave, Foxwell, and Marshall had discussed the idea that an economic journal should be attached to the Royal Statistical Society. But after some negative discussions with the society, the idea was dropped.
He argued that members should be selected "not for an interest in economics but for work. However, Marshall opposed the idea. He explained to Foxwell: It is men of affairs from whom I learn". At its inauguration the society was made available to all those with an interest in economics, regardless of their scholarly qualifications.Search our resource of economics-related grants and fellowships.
