At their most uninhibited, fundamentalist Keynesians have presented Keynes’s ideas as an escape from the essential ‘timelessness’ of the modes of thought he attacked. More concretely, they have presented his central message regarding employment as concerning the existence of a liquid asset in a world of uncertainty, thus providing a retreat from the holding of real assets and the associated commitment to (employmentgenerating) production of a particular output. This theme has been much elaborated by Shackle and is concisely expounded by Loasby; in Joan Robinson’s work, however, we find its place taken by a preoccupation with the heterogeneity of capital goods: the fact that individual items of the capital stock that history bequeaths to us cannot be costlessly transformed into one another, but exist in particular forms, embodying particular techniques, reflecting the superseded expectations of the past.
