284R. L. C. Robbins to Harrod, [24 February 1933] [a]

Robbins was asked to send Harrod his paper for the Jowett, [1] but he is not able to do so since it will not be ready before Tuesday [28 February]. However, he summarizes in detail its content. Robbins is glad that Harrod is willing to talk on utility at the London School, and suggests the date of 14 March, which would give Rosenstein-Rodan--who wrote the article on "Grenznutzen" for the Handwörterbuch [2] --the opportunity to attend. [2]

  1. 1. L. Robbins, "The Relation of Economics to Psychology", read before the Jowett Society in Oxford on 28 February 1933.
