Part of the Archival Insights into the Evolution of Economics book series (AIEE)


Having examined the structure of influence within the Keynesian and anti-Keynesian traditions (volumes 1 and 2 in the series Archival Insights into the Evolution of Economics), this volume focuses more directly on economists and the policy process. In the twentieth century, the United States replaced the United Kingdom as the center of both academic economics and the international economy. In the process, the position of the United States with regard to multinational bodies was transformed: from declining to be involved (League of Nations, 1920) to collaborative construction (Bretton Woods, 1944) to all the arrogance and anxieties of sole superpower status.
