Abstract: Born in Melbourne in 1931, Geoff Harcourt graduated B. Comm. and M. Comm. at the University of Melbourne, and then went on to graduate as a PhD at Cambridge University. He returned to Australia in 1958 to take up a Lectureship at the University of Adelaide, where he was appointed to a Personal Chair in 1967. In 1982 he accepted a Fellowship at Jesus College, Cambridge, and a lectureship in Economics, and was subsequently promoted to Reader in the History of Economic Theory at Cambridge. Geoff Harcourt, a Keynesian economist in the broadest sense, is one of the few Australian economists whose writings have been absorbed by the leading economists of his generation.
