Don Patinkin: interpreter of the Keynesian revolution

Author

Listed:
  • Roger Backhouse

Abstract

Don Patinkin was a major contributor to the debate over the Keynesian revolution who, later in his career, became a historian of Keynesian economics. Drawing on unpublished papers as well as his publications, this paper traces the evolution of Patinkin's writing on this subject and seeks to explain, taking account of his statements about historiography, why he approached it in the way that he did. It argues that his earlier and later work formed part of a single intellectual journey that originated in his training, influenced by Frank Knight and Jacob Viner, in Chicago in the 1940s.
