About William Jevons

William Stanley Jevons was one of the foremost economists of the 19th century.  He was one of the main British contributors to the marginalist revolution in economic thought of the 1870s and one of the founders of modern economic science.  Aside from his pathbreaking worth as a theorist, Jevons helped pioneer the practical use of economic statistics and was on the first exponents of modern econometric methods.  Jevons was a student at the college and went on to become a professor at UCL.
