Informations and abstract
The three volumes of the "Collected Interwar Papers and Correspondence of Roy Harrod", edited by Daniele Besomi, and published by Edward Elgar in 2003, are the outcome of more than a ten-year effort in collecting documents, and making contact with hundred people and institutions. After having briefly drawn the attention on the vast amount of work that is below the edition of "The Collected Interwar Papers and Correspondence of Roy Harrod", the two versions of the volumes, namely the paper edition, and the experimental electronic version, are examined. Moreover, in order to test the search engine which values the electronic version, a short research on the spread of the idea of Harrod's foreign trade multiplier is attempted. Finally, the recent literature on Harrod's dynamic theory is reviewed.
