Alfred Marshall (1842-1924)The Marshall Society is the Economics Society of the University of Cambridge. Established in 1927 in memory of Alfred Marshall, the Society has since upheld the tradition of its distinguished founders in furthering the discussion of economics. Former members of the Marshall Society include John Maynard Keynes, Nicholas Kaldor, Joan Robinson and Manmohan Singh.

Our interest lies in bringing together all young economists in Cambridge and promoting the debate and discussion of current economic issues through fortnightly speaker events with renowned academics, leading politicians and respected economists.

Alfred Marshall was first and foremost a brilliant and original theorist. His insights into theory and his sound philosophy combined still have much to commend themselves to us, his pupils at Cambridge.
