Abstract

I count it a great privilege to contribute an essay to the volume for John Henry. I have known him since he was a doctoral student at McGill in the 1970s. John was supervised by my old and dear friend, the late Athanasios (Tom) Asimakopulos. (Tom and I were Ph.D students at King’s, Cambridge in the 1950s.) I read John’s dissertation on J.B. Clark and the origins of neoclassical economics and was bowled over by his scholarship, critical ability, analytical strength, enthusiasm and radical humanity.

Keywords: Marx, Veblen, John Henry, economic thought

JEL Classification: B00, B31
