This paper discusses the works of Joseph Schumpeter and Richard Goodwin using the common perspective that both were theoretical mavericks of mainstream economic theory development in the 20th century. In particular the fact that their activities overlapped during their cooperation at Harvard University is explored. Their contributions are interpreted as entrepreneurial activity in the domain of theory building - with some spillovers to economic policy intervention. It is argued that maverick theoretical activity is indispensable for progress in evolutionary political economy.
