Walter Bagehot (1826-1877) was a British journalist who wrote at length about economics, government and literature. He studied mathematics and philosophy at University College London, and was called to the bar by Lincoln's Inn. However, he settled on a life of writing, founding the National Review in 1855 and later becoming editor-in-chief of The Economist (founded by his father-in-law in 1860).
