The fear of an acceleration of inflation undoubtedly underlay the opposition of Hayek to monetary and fiscal expansion in the 1930s. 469; O'Brien, 1994a, p. 360), arguing in his 1934 reply to Hansen and Tout (1933) that boosting demand was mistaken, thus ensuring that the 'LSE Austrians' repelled their potential allies in Chicago as Friedman (1974, pp. 162-3) has subsequently testified. Hayek later softened his opposition to government macroeconomic policy (1960, pp. 223, 324-39); but not very much.

There were, I think, three reasons why Hayek persevered with this unfortunate concept. Firstly, it was part of the programme to establish the legitimacy of an Austrian alternative to Anglo-Saxon economics. For this, a lineage was necessary, and Bohm-Bawerk was a founding father of the line. Never mind that the period of production in the latter's work is crude. This can be put down to inferior technique.
