“A Professor in Parliament: Experiencing a Turbulent Parliament and Reform Party Caucus, 1993-97”
This book presents an autobiographical account of Herb Grubel’s life, with special emphasis on his experience teaching at some of the leading universities in North America, having some of the most distinguished economists as his teachers and colleagues and experiencing the rise and decline of the Keynesian paradigm in macro-economics. The largest part of the book is dedicated to an account of his experience as an elected member of Canada's federal parliament in Ottawa 1993 to 1997, serving as his party's Finance Critic for 2 years.
(The color of this page is the
same as that used by the Reform Party during the election campaign.)
Here is what some reviewers
of the book had to say about it:
incorrect professor…if you are an economist or a political and policy junkie,
it’s a must read.”
“The book is part
autobiography, part impressively jargon free primer on economics, part history
of economics fashion, and only two-thirds about his political experience.
I think the latter will stand the test of time as a valuable insight into
Reform’s workings and personalities…it will ‘have legs’ for years for
its historic insights.”
Trevor Lautens, North Shore News, July 7, 2000.
“A Professor in Parliament
provides the most intelligent, honest and fair account I’ve read on behaviour,
attitudes and roles in our parliamentary parties.”
Douglas Fisher, Toronto Sun, June 25, 2000
