Hi John

 

Keynes cites Mitchell in the Treatise on Money but not in the General Theory. Keynes visited Mitchell in New York. See my How Economics Forgot History (2001, pp. 217 ff.).

 

Keep well

Best wishes

Subject: [AFEEMAIL] Impact of Wesley Clair Mitchell on Keynes?

 

Sibling Self Social Distancers,

 

If I may change the topic for a moment, I'm trying to get a little writing done during the apocalypse and am currently revising a paper on business cycle theories. I have searched and searched to find some mention of Mitchell in Keynes' writing or vice versa so as to get a sense of whether or not there was, at the very least, sympathy if not direct influence.

 

So far, not so good.

 

Might someone be able to point me in the right direction?

 

Many thanks in advance!

 

John
