590. J. M. Keynes to Harrod , 7 October 1936 [a]

[Follows on from 582 ]

46, Gordon Square, Bloomsbury #

7 October 1936

Dear Roy,

I am now back from abroad and have your letter of September 28th. [1] I am rather sorry that your paper is to appear in Econometrica, since it has so restricted a circulation. [2] For example, I fancy that neither Pigou, nor Kahn, nor Joan Robinson take it in. But I quite see that they had a claim on it.

You, I think, had Lindahl with you [3] , but I had a good discussion with the other economists in Stockholm. I do not consider that we as yet quite see eye to eye on liquidity preference, but broadly speaking they there are very much on the same lines.

Yours ever,

J M Keynes

Roy Harrod Esq., Christ Church, Oxford.
