Portrait of E.R.A. Seligman

An American convert to German Historicism, E.R.A. Seligman's institutional and historical approach to public finance led him to become one of the foremost authorities on taxation in economics. He was a campaigner for the progressive income tax system and one of the primary researchers on the incidence of taxation. He was also an excellent scholar of the history of economic thought, having been largely responsible for digging the "Dublin" proto-marginalists, (Whately, Senior, Lloyd) out of obscurity.

This Columbia economist was, together with his more radical comrade-in-methodology, Richard T. Ely, one of the founders of the American Economic Association (AEA). While a historicist in method, and thus a founding father of American Institutionalism, Seligman was nonetheless sympathetic to both Marxian and Austrian economics. Seligman was one of the founders and organizers of the early New School for Social Research.
