Hayek detonated Keynes’ great “Treatise” which Keynes intended as his calling card as a serious theoretical economist, and Keynes was forced to start over. And we can see Keynes adopting and recasting a variety of Hayek conception in his “The General Theory” — and attempting to parley and brush off all sorts of other Hayekian conceptions in that same work.
Axel Leijonhufvud and others macroeconomists have given various Hayekian versions of Keynesian economics, and David Laidler has given us an account of many of the pre-Keynesian & non-Keynesian elements which make up “mainstream” Keynesian economics — but who has done a detailed study of how the encounter with Hayek transformed the economics of Keynes?
Such a study, as far as I am aware, doesn’t exit.
There really isn’t a serious study of the flip side of this either, how the encounter with Keynes transformed the economics of Hayek.
Such things would be very useful.
UPDATE: There are books which don’t do exactly what I am wishing for, but which do limn parts of the Hayek – Keynes “debate”, e.g. The Hayek-Keynes Debate by John Cochrane & Fred Glahe and Gerald O’Driscoll’s Economics as a Coordination Problem, among others, but none of these are history of economic thought books charting out all of the specific development of specific ideas and arguments over time.
