    Abstract

    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.
