Example text

Consequently, in this post-war public affirmation and anticommunist context, economic departments wanted to avoid the reputation of being weak in theory and mathematical training, to ensure that their students did not leave complaining that they had not receive a good graduate education, and to be at the theoretical forefront of the discipline or at least be respectable. Continuing the trend of the 1930s of hiring up-to-date neoclassically trained theorists, departments from 1945 onward into the 1970s made clear decisions to hire well-trained neoclassical theorists with proselytizing, anti-pluralistic attitudes to transform the way economic theory was being taught to its undergraduate and graduate students.

In fact, by 1940 many neoclassical economists had come to see Institutionalism and neoclassical theory as quite compatible, albeit with different emphases30 (Gaffney and Harrison 1994; Emmett 1998; Carlson 1968; Young 1925; Jones 1988; Sass 1982; Ross 1991; Mayhew 1987; Hamilton 1918a, 1918b, 1919; Parker 1919; Hammond 2000; Gruchy 1947; Bernstein 2001; Hodgson 2001; Rutherford 1997, 2000a, 2000b, 2001, 2002, 2003a, 2004; and Kaufman 2007). Beginning in the 1920s and more rapidly in the 1930s, American neoclassical price theory was transformed and expanded: general equilibrium began to creep in, monopolistic competition and the marginalist revolution transforms the discussion of costs, pricing, prices, the business enterprise, and competition, and theory began to inform empirical research.

From 1900 to 1940 (and after) there circulated among farmers, workers, immigrants, migrants, the unemployed, and the dispossessed, numerous popular tracts, pamphlets, newspapers, and books that made reference to, were only understandable in terms of, or directly discussed the classical political economy of Marxism (or socialism) and Georgism. In addition, cheap editions of Capital and other writings by Marx, Engels, and Lenin, and of Progress and Poverty were widely available by the 1930s and were bought and studied.
