Arnold Toynbee foi um economista britânico. O seu trabalho envolvia história econômica, com o compromisso e desejo de melhoria nas condições das classes trabalhadoras. O historiador Arnold Joseph Toynbee , com quem ele é frequentemente confundido, era seu sobrinho.

Em 1873 começou a estudar economia política na Oxford University, a princípio no Pembroke College e, a partir de 1875, no Balliol College, onde também lecionou após sua graduação, em 1878. Ao longo da sua curta vida, este economista inglês marcou posição contra uma perspectiva da Economia como mero raciocínio analítico. De facto, as suas reflexões continham um pendor social apaixonado. Ficaram conhecidas as suas aulas sobre a História económica da Revolução Industrial, no Balliol College. O registo dessas aulas foi publicado postumamente sob o título The Industrial Revolution, em 1884.

Toynbee introduziu ou pelo menos popularizou a expressão 'Revolução Industrial' no mundo anglófono — na Alemanha e outros países, o conceito havia sido introduzido anteriormente, por Friedrich Engels, também sob o impacto das transformações operadas na indústria da Grã-Bretanha.

Citações Arnold Toynbee

„To the capitalists we appeal to use their wealth, as many of their order already do, as a great national trust, and not for selfish purposes alone.“

— Arnold Toynbee
Context: The Radical creed, as I understand it, is this: We have not abandoned our old belief in liberty, justice, and Self-help, but we say that under certain conditions the people cannot help themselves, and that then they should be helped by the State representing directly the whole people. In giving this State help, we make three conditions: first, the matter must be one of primary social importance; next, it must be proved to be practicable; thirdly, the State interference must not diminish self-reliance. Even if the chance should arise of removing a great social evil, nothing must be done to weaken those habits of individual self-reliance and voluntary association which have built up the greatness of the English people. But — to take an example of the State doing for a section of the people what they could not do for themselves — I am not aware that the Merchant Shipping Act has diminished the self-reliance of the British sailor. We differ from Tory Socialism in so far as we are in favour, not of paternal, but of fraternal government, and we differ from Continental Socialism because we accept the principle of private property, and repudiate confiscation and violence. With Mazzini, we say the worst feature in Continental Socialism is its materialism. It is this indeed which utterly separates English Radical Socialists from Continental Socialists — our abhorrence and detestation of their materialistic ideal. To a reluctant admission of the necessity for State action, we join a burning belief in duty, and a deep spiritual ideal of life. And we have more than an abstract belief in duty, we do not hesitate to unite the advocacy of social reform with an appeal to the various classes who compose society to perform those duties without which all social reform must be merely delusive. To the capitalists we appeal to use their wealth, as many of their order already do, as a great national trust, and not for selfish purposes alone. We exhort them to aid in the completion of the work they have well begun, and, having admitted the workmen to political independence, not to shrink from accepting laws and carrying out plans of social reform directed to secure his material independence. To the workman we appeal by the memory and traditions of his own sufferings and wrongs to be vigilant to avoid the great guilt of inflicting upon his fellow-citizens the injustice from which he has himself escaped. p. 219. "Are Radicals Socialists?",

„The greatest punishment for those who are not interested in politics is that they are governed by people who are.“

— Arnold Toynbee
Alleged source is unkown. There are very few references to this quote in the internet, but early quotes can be found on twitter Tweet from 2010 https://twitter.com/karow55/status/24586690041. Brazillian writer Rodrigo Constantino cited it in the book "Prisioneiros da liberdade‎", page 157, without giving any further references. It may very well be a misquote from Plato's Republic Book 1, 347-C: "Good men are unwilling to rule, either for money's sake or for honour.... So they must be forced to consent under threat of penalty.... The heaviest penalty for declining to rule is to be ruled by someone inferior to yourself."
