A Personal Note on Joan Robinson
It is almost impossible to separate Joan Robinson the economist, Joan Robinson the person, and Joan Robinson the Cantabrigian, that is, a participant in the extraordinary group of economists who flourished at Cambridge University in the decades following World War I. I find it also difficult to separate my own reactions as an economist, as a person, and as a non-Cantabrigian. So this note perhaps must be discounted in academic terms for its strong personal flavor.
