Robinson that ‘Kahn put in a good deal of work in the last stages of Keynes’s Treatise of Money, although she added ‘it can be seen from the correspondence that they were both in a great muddle’ (JVR papers, i/8/1–2). The discrepancy between Kahn’s later statement and the documents at our disposal can easily be accounted for with Kahn’s different assessment of the importance of the kind of help he had given Keynes before and after completing work on the Dissertation. Moggridge came up with a very different interpretation: ‘[Kahn] deliberately (and mistakenly) distanced himself too much from the Treatise and thus overly highlighted his own role in the new ideas that were later to emerge’ (Moggridge 1992:532n).

Shortly afterwards, Keynes asked Kahn, ‘as my traditional first class critic’ (letter 61, 9 September 1941), for his comments on the proposal of an international currency union, and received a very favourable response. Kahn came to Cairo in October 1941; he was made Economic Adviser and from January 1942 he acted as Deputy Director General of the Centre. The Centre was concerned with the collection of information, recommendations on the priority of imports, and co-ordination of the executive acts of the governments of the Middle East.

Two problems in particular needed careful handling. Robinson a full-time lectureship in 1938. Some members of the Board opposed it, but Kahn succeeded in the end thanks also to Pigou’s stand in her favour. Keynes wrote to Kahn: I am extremely relieved that the matter of Joan’s lectureship looks like being settled. For, if it had fallen through, it really would have been a case for armed insurrection. I am very glad that Pigou took the right line. Indeed, I expected him to do so. But how the other wretches can have failed to recognise that outside Cambridge she is unquestionably one of the most distinguished members of the staff, without the slightest doubt within the first half dozen, I cannot imagine.
