Lady Ursula Hicks

Lady Ursula Hicks

Ursula Kathleen Webb Hicks (1896–1985) was an Irish-born economist. She was daughter of William and Isabella Webb and wife of John Hicks.

Despite her impressively heavyweight husband, Ursula Hicks was an accomplished scholar in her own right. She was a renowned public finance and development economist. Hicks was also one of the founders of the Review of Economic Studies and Managing Editor there from 1933 to 1961.

Her 1946 paper argued against economic usefulness of the distinction between direct taxes and indirect tax (as to who the nominal payer is) versus taxes on income and expenditures (outlays), a distinction now recognized in national accounting.

Lady Ursula Hicks received an Honorary Fellowship at the Institute of Social Studies in 1967.

Famous quotes containing the words hicks and/or lady:

    Even in ordinary speech we call a person unreasonable whose outlook is narrow, who is conscious of one thing only at a time, and who is consequently the prey of his own caprice, whilst we describe a person as reasonable whose outlook is comprehensive, who is capable of looking at more than one side of a question and of grasping a number of details as parts of a whole.
    —G. Dawes Hicks (1862–1941)

    There once was a lady of Spain
    Who liked it now and again:
    That’s now, then again
    And again and again
    And again and again and again.
