Many thanks, Howard--not surprisingly, you are indeed already cited in several places! However, I shall have a look at this list to see if there is something I have overlooked.

It has felt good to get some writing done since everything else has gone to hell. :(

Dear John,

I have discussed both Keynes and Mitchell in a number of books and articles. They and Marx are the foundations

of my work. The book called

Principles of Macroeconomics….

has fairly simplified explanations of both Mitchell and Keynes and uses their approaches in many chapters.


The book on Inequality…..also makes great use of

Mitchells graphs and Keynes terminology to explain Marx’s political economy.

Finally, in this last article the term “profit squeeze” is examined for its crucial role in each of the authors.

Good to hear from you,

Subject: 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!
