Joan Robinson is widely regarded as the greatest female economist and the most important figure in the post-Keynesian tradition. In this volume a distinguished, international team of scholars analyses her extraordinary wide ranging contribution to economics.
Various contributions address:
* her work on the economics of the short period and her critique of Pigou
* her contribution to the development of the Keynesian tradition at Cambridge
* her response to Marx and Sraffa
* her analysis of growth, development and dynamics
* her comments on technical innovation and capital theory
* her preference for 'history' rather than equilibrium as a basis for methodology.
Her published work spanned six decades, and the volume includes a bibliography of her work including some 450 items which will be a major resource for students of the development of modern economic analysis.
