Geoff Harcourt In Audio And Video Formats

As I understand it, Geoff Harcourt is now living in Australia, after having recently moved home from Cambridge, England. While in Cambridge, he wrote The Structure of Post-Keynesian Economics: The Core Contributions of the Pioneers and, especially, Joan Robinson, the latter with Prue Kerr.

While there, Harcourt contributed his time to a few interviews and lectures. I have previously mentioned his November 2009 lecture to the Post Keynesian Study Group on the legacy of Joan Robinson. He also gave a May 2010 lecture, to the same forum, on the crisis in mainstream economics. Finally, one can find a two-interview on YouTube.

This comment is about an earlier post.

I note you have this post here on nonergodicity:

Would you say that nonergodicity is a property of climate or the weather?

Or is it ergodic?

There are also interviews to Bob Rowthorn, Wynne Godley, and Randall Keynes (the nephew of John Maynard), among other Cambridge celebrities.

I wouldn't model climate these days by a steady state.

Thanks for the recommended interviews. I've listened to Bob Rowthorn. He talks about his split with the Sraffians, as well as many other interesting topics.
