The Cambridge Background to Imperfect Competition

Chapter

Abstract

The Economics of Imperfect Competition (Robinson, 1933) is a quintessentially Cambridge book, very much an outgrowth of the economics of Marshall and Pigou as tempered and criticized in the ‘Cambridge cost controversies’ of the 1920s. So close is the book’s dependence on Cambridge tradition, and so limited its reliance on intellectual developments emanating elsewhere, that it is difficult to imagine that it could have been written by anyone but a true product of the Cambridge School of Economics, founded by Marshall and, in the early 1930s, very much at the height of its glory.
