Joan Robinson is widely regarded as one of the greatest economists and the most important figure in the post-Keynesian tradition. In this volume a distinguished, international team of scholars analyze her 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; and 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 resource for students of the development of modern economic analysis.
