Originally published in 1956, The Accumulation of Capital provides a dynamic approach to the question of what determines growth and capital accumulation in the long run. Covering topics relating to finance, money and credit this work is prescient in the concerns it addresses.

The Accumulation of Capital is as relevant today as when it was first published. A true classic, it demonstrates Robinson's innovative approach to economics and her ability to embrace and extend the ideas of Marx, Keynes and Kalecki.

This re-issued classic contains a new introduction by Professor Geoff Harcourt and Prue Kerr who explore the influences of Keynes, Marx and Kaleki on this great work and examine the relevance of the growth model.
