Joan Robinson An Appreciation

Joan Robinson: An Appreciation Sukhamoy Chakravarty Throughout her very productive life as a creative economic theorist, Joan Robinson maintained that economics was not a 'game,' played for its own sake. She was profoundly concerned with the social relevance of economics.
