Angus Maddison




Angus Maddison (b. 1926) enjoys a world-wide reputation as a pioneer in the field of the quantification of economic growth in an international 

comparative and historical perspective. Maddison is Emeritus Professor of Economic Sociology at the Faculty of Economics at the University of Groningen 

in the Netherlands and Honorary Fellow of Selwyn College, Cambridge. Just recently (October 2006), Professor Maddison was awarded the title of 

Commander in the Order of Orange-Nassau.

 

He was educated at Cambridge, McGill, and Johns Hopkins universities, before teaching at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. His professional 

relationship with the OECD began even before the Organisation's birth. He was Head of the OEEC Economics Division from 1953 to 1962 when the 

organisation became the OECD. From 1963 to 1966, he was a Fellow of the newly created OECD Development Centre. He left the Organisation in order 

to undertake research for the Twentieth Century Fund and Harvard University's Development Advisory Service but, by 1971, Professor Maddison was 

back at the OECD as Head of the Central Analysis Division, a post he retained for seven years.

 

Angus Maddison has been an advisor to the governments of Brazil, Ghana, Greece and Pakistan and has travelled widely in developing countries as part of 

his research interests. His major research interest today is the assessment of the forces affecting the economic growth performance of nations, with 

particular emphasis on quantitative analysis in historical and comparative perspectives.

 

Professor Maddison is the author or co-author of 25 books and a great many articles in academic and financial journals.
The author currently lives in Thourotte (France).
