Influence (or the lack of it) in the economics profession: The case of Lucien Albert Hahn
Leeson, R. (1997) Influence (or the lack of it) in the economics profession: The case of Lucien Albert Hahn. History of Political Economy, 29 (4). pp. 635-638.
D. J. Boudreaux and G. A. Selgin’s fascinating discussion of L. Albert Hahn – “a precursor of Keynesianism and the monetarist counter-revolution” - deserves the attention of economists. The purpose of this essay is to add some further information about Hahn’s influence, to highlight a similarity between Hahn and A.W.H. Phillips, to question whether Hahn can accurately be described as a “proto-monetarist,” and to provoke some discussion about the sociology of knowledge in the economics profession.
