John A. Hobson

a.k.a. John Atkinson Hobson, J. A. Hobson

Author Code: EJAH

Born: Jul. 6, 1858 - Derby, England

Died: Apr. 1, 1940 - London, England

Educated at Lincoln's College, Oxford, Hobson taught English and classics at schools in Exeter and Faversham after graduating. In 1887, he took a position with the London School of Economics. In 1889, in collaboration with Albert F. Mummery, he published Physiology of Industry, which was controversial in economic circles. The book put forward Hobson's theory of underconsumption which went against the classical economic theories of the time and eventually led to his exclusion from the academic commmunity. He continued to write, however, and in 1898 joined the Manchester Guardian as their South African correspondent. After covering the Boer War, Hobson returned to England disillusioned with imperialism and published War in South Africa (1900) and Psychology of Jingoism (1901) as condemnation of both the conflict and its causes. In 1902, he published Imperialism, a book which cemented his international reputation and influenced a number of 20th century world leaders. He joined the Union of Democratic Control during World War I and was an opponent of the League of Nations. In 1919, he joined the Independent Labour Party and wrote for a number of socialist publications including the New Statesman and the Socialist Review. As time progressed, he became a critic of socialist ideas and the Labour Government of 1929. In 1938, he published his autobiography, Confessions of an Economic Heretic. His other works include Problems of Poverty (1891), Evolution of Modern Capitalism (1894), Problem of the Unemployed (1896), The Economics of Distribution (1900), International Trade (1904), The Crisis of Liberalism (1909), The Science of Wealth (1911), The German Panic (1913), Western Civilization (1915), Taxation and the New State (1919), Problems of a New World (1921), Notes on Law and Order (1926), God and Mammon (1931), Rationalism and Humanism (1933) and Property and Improperty (1937).
