Back in 1975, almost everybody in the economics profession expected the British economist, Joan Robinson, to win the Nobel Prize in economics. That never happened, despite the fact that she had a diverse body of work in such fields as the analysis of imperfect competition, the development of Keynesian economic theory, capital theory, the elucidation of Marxian economic theory, and the development of post-Keynesian economics. Her work in any one of those fields ought to have been sufficient to merit winning that Prize. Ever since then, commentators have debated the extent to which her not winning the Prize was due to misogyny versus opposition to her far left politics. No woman would win that Prize until 2009, when the American economist, Elinor Ostrom, shared the Prize with Oliver E. Williamson, for their work on economic governance.
