Joan Violet Robinson FBA (née Maurice; 31 October 1903 – 5 August 1983) was a British economist well known for her wide-ranging contributions to economic theory. She was a central figure in what became known as post-Keynesian economics. Before leaving to fight in the Second Boer War, Joan's father, Frederick Barton Maurice, married Margaret Helen Marsh, the daughter of Frederick Howard Marsh, and the sister of Edward Marsh, at St George's, Hanover Square.

without any logical content, can yet be a powerful influence on thought and action

without any logical content, can yet be a powerful influence on thought and action. Robinson is responsible for some of the most austerely professional contributions to economic theory, but here in effect she takes the reader behind the scenes and cheerfully exposes the dogmatic content of economic orthodoxy.

The text in this book is clearly reproduced from scans of a previous print, which resulted in many minor issues, but is still fully readable through out. I wouldn't have had any major complaints, until I tried to reference the two charts reproduced in the appendix of the book, both of which have had their columns all smashed together, and are then randomly broken across two pages, making them completely unreadable.

The published clearly couldn't be bothered to look over what they were printing, I'll go to the library next time.

Edit: the above was written right after completing what I thought was the book that was recommended to me. It turns out this book is actually called "Economics of Liberty" by Joan Beverly Robinson, but is printed with the title and author of a different book. Amazon need's to remove this book, and probably every thing from this publisher, from their listings immediately. DO NOT BUY.

Due to a publisher's error on the cover, and an Amazon mistake in promoting this book as Joan Robinson's Book Economic Philosophy you should not order this book. Inside the cover is John Beverly Robinson's Economics of Liberty.

It is disappointing that they would make this mistake and inconvenience the purchasers.

I bought this book hoping to read the 1962 book on the issues of ideology in economics and critiques of concepts like Utility. However, THIS IS NOT THAT BOOK! The cover of the "Forgotten Books" reprint says, "Economic Philosophy", but, upon turning the page, one is confronted with A TOTALLY DIFFERENT BOOK. This book, a reprint of a 1916 book called "Economics of Liberty", is very different--THE PUBLISHER HAS MISTAKEN THE AUTHOR FOR ANOTHER PERSON WITH A SIMILAR NAME.

Joan Robinson was born in 1903; this book was published in 1916. "THE" famous cambridge economist, Joan Robinson is named "Joan Violet Robinson"; the "Joan Robinson" published in Minneapolis in 1916 is "Joan Beverly Robinson". NOT THE SAME PERSON.

Excellent copy, as described

Another reviewer recommends the book for the first chapter alone. I found chapter one very difficult to read, mostly because Robinson uses a lot of difficult-to-decipher quotes in that chapter, and she fails to explain them well. Perhaps there is significant insight in the chapter, but if you're not in the habit of reading Adam Smith, it will take you at least two reads to find it.

I admit that I have a very libertarian ideology, but I found a few of Robinson's critiques to be very nitpicky. For example, she takes issue with the claim that observable market behavior "reveals preferences" because it is impossible to make measurements independent of time, even though I would not think it is unreasonable to assume that people's preferences don't change drastically over short periods without the presence of factors that might cause that.

The second and third chapters have the most substance. Robinson does a good job of shedding light on the ideologies that pervades many economics concepts. Her critiques of value theory and utility theory are especially poignant. I was a little disappointed with the second half of the book because she seems to praise Keynes more than is due and extends her discussion of ideology less than I would have liked. Robinson also never really describes what she thinks should replace value or utility theory, or what she thinks economists should do differently.

Anyone with a serious, long lasting interest in economics should read this book, because the issues she discusses in the first half of the book are very important. I have a feeling that people who have read a lot of primary sources in economics (Adam Smith, Marx, Marshall) will get more out of the book than people who have not (I haven't).

Most people find something to dislike about Joan Robinson whether they are from the right or the left. She is one of the few people who managed to live a life of intellectual chit-chat without hooking up with any of the reigning orthodoxies. What could be more refreshing? What's more, she is a master theoretician and wordsmith.

The first chapter, about economics and ideology, is worth the price of the book.

Unless your brain has become numbed by modern life and 21st century economics, read this book. You are certain to be stimulated and any annoyance you experience is probably deserved.
