(p.72) Chapter 3 An Intellectual in Conservative Politics: The Case of Arthur Steel-Maitland
Ideologies of Conservatism


Oxford University Press

This chapter outlines perhaps the fullest, earliest Conservative response to Keynes through the ideas of the Conservative politician Arthur Steel–Maitland. These evolved from the time of his involvement in the pre-1914 tariff debate as a member of the Confederacy, the Compatriots Club, and the Unionist Social Reform Committee, through his engagement with the ‘new economics’ of the inter-war years. Steel–Maitland's ideas on tariff reform, constructive imperialism, social reform, industrial relations, state intervention, the ‘slump’ and mass unemployment are reviewed.

Keywords:   Arthur Steel-Maitland, tariff reform, tariff debate, state intervention, Keynes, the Confederacy, Compatriots Club, Unionist Social Reform Committee, constructive imperialism, unemployment
