Summary This collection brings together fifteen essays published between 1994 and 2008 which all look into the contribution of a remarkable group of economists known as the ""Cambridge school"" or the ""Cambridge Keynesians"". The people involved are better defined as a ""group"" rather than a ""school"", to denote not adhesion to a common body of doctrine but rather the idea of both cohesion and sharing. This collection focuses on Keynes, Kahn, J. Robinson and Sraffa, who all shared in the physical space and lifestyle of the University of Cambridge. The bond between them was intellectual partnership.
