I love your final heuristic!

I don't love Romer's assertion that Solow was doing "science" while Robinson was doing "politics". I don't see why somebody entirely sympathetic to free market capitalism couldn't have been just as interested in the conceptual difficulties surrounding capital and the aggregate production function as Robinson. Arguably somebody with the opposite political alignments to Robinson ought to be *more* interested in those issues, since they stand in the way of one straightforward justification of a certain sort of market capitalism.
