First published in 1988. Most of the articles reprinted in this collection were based on material developed for the author’s students in order to assist them in understanding the theories of Michal Kalecki, John Maynard Keynes and Joan Robinson. Each article is self-contained, but together the articles provide an introduction to the important contributions of these three economists that also makes clear the interrelations between their theories. The treatment of their theories in these articles is sympathetic, but not uncritical.
