Hawtrey and Robertson
Dennis Robertson’s career as an economist spanned much the same period as that of Hawtrey. Like Hawtrey, his main contributions were ‘in the fields of monetary theory and industrial fluctuation’.1 Similarly, he was an alumnus of Trinity College, Cambridge and a member of the Apostles. And, to an even greater degree than Hawtrey, he was a friend of Keynes and at various times either his collaborator or critic. Perhaps it is not surprising that Robertson and Hawtrey crossed paths — and swords — repeatedly.
