678R. J. M. Keynes to Harrod, 13 June 1937 [a]

Keynes apologises for Marks's letter in The Times; [1] "I thought you were much wiser to come in independently into what is avowedly not a brand new subject".

  1. 1. Geoffrey Marks wrote to The Times complaining that the Oxford economist who signed the collective letter "Action against a Slump" (The Times, 9 June 1937, p. 17) "are not interested in the views of Cambridge economist", otherwise they would have introduced some reference to Keynes ("Action against a Slump", The Times, 11 June 1937). The economists' letter was drafted by Meade, and commented upon by Harrod in letter 669 to Meade of 18 May.
