76. When was Robbins a student of Bohm-Bawerk's?
It's possible that the fifteen year-old Robbins studied under Bhm-Bawerk in the last year of the latter man's life. But I have never heard that that was the case. And on what basis the charge that he was a sycophant? I suspect most introductory economics courses today will mention Lionel Robbins, but not Bhm-Bawerk. Robbins was influenced by the Austrians, and shared their unfortunate view that economics is a deductive affair.

Sign me still liberal. Like George Soros. And still attached to facts.
