Harcourt, Hicks and Lowe: Incompatible Bedfellows?

  • Peter Kriesler
Chapter

Abstract

In a very interesting and important paper titled ‘Marshall, Sraffa and Keynes; incompatible bedfellows?’ Harcourt explores the nature of centres of gravitation as explanations of long-period equilibrium. In that paper, he provides an excellent taxonomy for the possible meaning of these positions, as well as outlining some of the problems associated with them.
