Keynes and his Cambridge Colleagues
The assignment that I have been given today is to talk to you about Keynes’s relations to his younger Cambridge colleagues. But I do not believe there is a useful distinction in this case between younger and older and I fear that I shall not attempt to make it. In trying to think how I can best do this and contribute to our discussions I have come to the conclusion that I must begin by giving you something of a picture of the set-up of Cambridge economics as it was at the beginning of the 1930s. It is very easy for those of us who live and work in the large faculties and vast graduate and research departments of today to forget that they are almost wholly creations of the post-World-War II epoch — to forget how minute were the economics faculties of 1930.
