Don Patinkin and the origins of postwar monetary orthodoxy
AbstractDon Patinkin's Money, Interest, and Prices (1956) set the ground rules of postwar monetary discourse, for better or worse. A close look at the intellectual origins of the book in Patinkin's own life shows it to emerge equally from the Old Chicago School of Simons/Mints/Knight and the Cowles Commission of Lange/Marschak/Haavelmo. Patinkin's conception of money as essentially an outside asset is argued to emerge from the historical context of war finance, and is contrasted with the Gurley-Shaw conception of money as a form of inside credit.
