Abstract: Abstract Alfred Maizels was a quiet and unassuming person — a true gentle-man. He possessed a formidable intellect, accompanied by the belief and commitment that, properly used, the skills of the economist can make significant improvements in the everyday lives and well-being of real people. There was no time within his economic world for ‘angels on a pinhead’ debates or other forms of unproductive economic musings. Instead, his career was spent utilizing the best and most appropriate techniques then available from within the economist’s tool-chest in order to tackle the problem in hand.1
