Richard M. Goodwin: a pioneer in the field of economic dynamics between the two Cambridges
In the attempt to answer three (interrelated) questions, we concentrate on a crucial step in Goodwin’s (RMG) life: his move from Cambridge, Mass. to Cambridge, UK. Why did RMG not get a permanent position at Harvard? How did RMG reach the decision to settle down in Cambridge, UK? Why was it that RMG never finished the book on economic dynamics he had started to write at Harvard? In answering these questions we show that the material available in the Goodwin Archive at the University of Siena is invaluable and adds much to the ‘known story’.
