Robert Lowe's wit and brilliance made him one of the most admired and detested figures of the Victorian age, the only classical economist to become Chancellor of the Exchequer. This is the first study of him by a fellow economist, examining how as Chancellor he caused a riot with his proposed match tax and hankered to take Britain into a single European currency.
