Sir Roy Forbes Harrod (February 13, 1900 – March 8, 1978) was an English economist. He is best known for his biography of John Maynard Keynes and the development of the Harrod–Domar model, which he and Evsey Domar developed independently. He is also known for his International Economics, a former standard textbook, the first edition of which contained some observations and ruminations (wanting in subsequent editions) that would foreshadow theories developed independently by later scholars (such as the Balassa-Samuelson effect).

Born in Norfolk, Harrod attended New College in Oxford. Afterwards he spent some time at King's College, Cambridge. It was there that he met and befriended Keynes.

After moving back to Oxford, he became a Student (i.e. Fellow) and Tutor in economics at Christ Church. He was still in contact with Keynes and was later his biographer. He was additionally a Fellow at Nuffield College 1938 to 1947 and from 1954 to 1958.

He married Wilhelmine Cresswell (Billa) in 1938.
