Example text

In his reply, Keynes failed to take up the numerous substantial criticisms made by Hayek. The main point of interest is his explicit statement that ‘. . in my view, saving and investment . . can get out of gear . . there being no automatic mechanism in the economic system . . to keep the two rates equal’. , 1935), pp. 161–62. ‘Reflections on the Pure Theory of Money of Mr. M. M. Keynes, ‘The Pure Theory of Money—A Reply to Dr. A. Hayek, ‘A Rejoinder to Mr. Keynes’, Economica (November 1931).

Quoted in Robert Lekachman, The Age of Keynes [London: Allen Lane The Penguin Press, 1967], p. ’, Quarterly Journal of Economics (August 1950). Earlier Professor Viner said: . . it is a matter of serious concern whether under modern conditions, even in a socialist country if it adheres to democratic political procedures, employment can always be maintained at a high level without recourse to inflation, overt or disguised, or if maintained whether it will not itself induce an inflationary wage spiral through the operation of collective bargaining .

5 The reason why Mr. Keynes does not draw this conclusion, and the general explanation of his peculiar attitude towards the problem of the determination of relative prices, is presumably that under the influence of the ‘real cost’ doctrine which to the present day plays such a large role in the Cambridge tradition, he assumes that the prices of all goods except the more durable ones are even in the short run determined by costs. But whatever one may think about the usefulness of a cost explanation of relative prices in equilibrium analysis, it should be clear that it is altogether useless in any discussion of problems of the short period.
