Summary
"Sir Dennis Holme Robertson (1890-1963) was one of Britain's foremost economists, who was also celebrated widely abroad, especially in the USA. He made a crucial contribution to the development of economic thought during his lifetime, especially regarding the relationship between the trade, or business, cycle and economic growth in a money-using economy. This book provides an overview of Robertson's life and work, and the relationship between them, based on biographical and historical evidence, literary criticism and economic analysis. There is also a focus on Robertson's relationship - personal and professional - with Keynes and Keynesian economics, within the Cambridge School of economic thought."--BOOK JACKET
