319. Harrod to Joan Robinson , 6 October 1933 [a]

Christ Church, Oxford #

6 October 1933

Dear Joan

It might interest you to know that I wrote to Maynard the other day [1] cancelling my note on Collective Bargaining for the E.J., [2] of which I had the proof some time ago, on the ground that it was superseded or made unnecessary by the Economics of Imperfect Competition. [3]

Yours sincerely

Roy [b]
