Arthur Pigou wasn’t a KGB agent after all

Or so it seems.  For twenty-five years I thought he was.  As I recall, the John Costello and Richard Deacon books said he recruited impressionable young British men to the Soviet side.  Now, using Google BookSearch I read that he was mistakenly accused.  Pigou, by the way, no matter what his politics, remains one of the most underrated economists.  He was, among other things, also a father of behavioral economics.
