More on Hawtrey, Harvard and Chicago
In this paper, I shall discuss in turn: the views of Hawtrey and Friedman on the powers of monetary and fiscal policy, and contrast them with those of Douglas and Director to which Tavlas draws attention; the role of monetary factors in causing and exacerbating the Great Contraction of 1929-1933, and what monetary policy might have accomplished to mitigate it; and the relationship between Douglas' work and that of some of his Chicago colleagues.
