"In 1931, Joan Robinson belonged to the little 'circus' that helped John Maynard Keynes to make the transition from A Treatise on Money to the General Theory. She became an ardent left-wing Keynesian of the first hour. Her Introduction to the Theory of Employment was one of the first expositions of Keynesian doctrine, and the Essays in the Theory of Employment contained original contributions to it, including an early extension to an open economy" (History of Economic Theory, p. 304).
