Example text

H. 6 Even Keynes had doubts, a few years after the General Theory. In his essay How to Pay for the War (London: Macmillan, 1940) he warned the trade unions of the ‘futility’ of demanding an increase in money rates of wages to compensate for every increase in the cost of living. To prevent inflation, he insisted, Some means must be found for withdrawing purchasing power from the market; or prices must rise until the available goods are selling at figures which absorb the increased quantity of expenditure—in other words the method of inflation.

14 II. The Misuse of Aggregates 1. INFLATIONISM In 1931 Professor Hayek believed that the naïve inflationist view—that every expansion of monetary expenditure produces expansion in output— had been superseded; but this view was revived in 1936 by the General Theory which strengthened the ‘subtler inflationism’ against which he directed his attack. While the more naïve forms of inflationism are sufficiently discredited today not to do much harm in the near future, contemporary economic thought is so much permeated by an inflationism of a subtler kind that it is to be feared that for some time we shall still have to endure the consequences of a good deal of dangerous tampering with currency and credit.

B) To limit price or wage-rate increases by an incomes policy is to freeze a particular set of price and wage-rate interrelationships while underlying circumstances of supply and demand are continually changing. This is like the ‘stability’ of a set of defective gauges perpetually pointing to the same set of readings. It reinforces other institutional factors preventing the specific changes in relative prices and wage rates necessary to the maintenance of ‘full’ employment. Or, to put this same point from a different angle, if ‘full’ employment is to be maintained at union-determined wage rates (which are inflexible downwards), all other prices and wage rates must be adjusted to them: other prices and wage rates must be set at, or reach, levels consistent with this objective.
