Citations Joan Robinson

„Progress is slow partly from mere intellectual inertia. In a subject where there is no agreed procedure for knocking out errors, doctrines have a long life.“

—  Joan Robinson

Source: Economic Philosophy (1962), p. 79
Contexte: Progress is slow partly from mere intellectual inertia. In a subject where there is no agreed procedure for knocking out errors, doctrines have a long life. A professor teaches what he was taught, and his pupils, with a proper respect and reverence for teachers, set up a resistance against his critics for no other reason than that it was he whose pupils they were.

„Even if the crises that are looming up are overcome and a new run of prosperity lies ahead, deeper problems will still remain.“

—  Joan Robinson

Conclusion, p. 143
Economic Heresies (1971)
Contexte: Even if the crises that are looming up are overcome and a new run of prosperity lies ahead, deeper problems will still remain. Modern capitalism has no purpose except to keep the show going.

„Their attitude to Marx, as the leading critic of capitalism, is therefore much less cocksure than it used to be. In my belief, they have much to learn from him.“

—  Joan Robinson, livre An Essay on Marxian Economics

Foreword, p. xxii
An Essay on Marxian Economics (Second Edition) (1966)
Contexte: Until recently, Marx used to be treated in academic circles with contemptuous silence, broken only by an occasional mocking footnote. But modern developments in academic theory, forced by modern developments in economic life — the analysis of monopoly and the analysis of unemployment — have shattered the structure of orthodox doctrine and destroyed the complacency with which economists were wont to view the working of laissez-faire capitalism. Their attitude to Marx, as the leading critic of capitalism, is therefore much less cocksure than it used to be. In my belief, they have much to learn from him.

„There is an unearthly, mystical element in Friedman's thought.“

—  Joan Robinson

The mere existence of a stock of money somehow promotes expenditure. But insofar as he offers an intelligible theory, it is made up of elements borrowed from Keynes.

„It is impossible to add the stock of money to the flow of saving.“

—  Joan Robinson
