Geoff Harcourt was esteemed for the quality of his prolific
scholarship. He was a pioneering post-Keynesian economist
who specialized in capital theory. But he also wrote on many
other theoretical areas as well as contributing to policy
debates and writing intellectual biographies. In addition to his
published work, he made a remarkable contribution as a
teacher and mentor, encouraging, supporting and guiding
countless students and colleagues. His contributions to economics and public policy are therefore far more than the
work he wrote himself. Generous, collegiate, encouraging and
sympathetic, he was an outstanding person as well as a
great economist.
