The lecture series commemorates the contributions to economic statistics of Sir Richard Stone (1913-1991), founding director of the Department of Applied Economics at Cambridge University. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics in 1984, for having made fundamental contributions to the development of systems of national accounts and hence having greatly improved the basis for empirical economic analysis.
