alkhudra Store GOTTFRIED HABERLER: PROSPERITY & DEPRESSION, THEORY of CYCLES/ECONOMICS/ 1958

PROSPERITY AND DEPRESSION:A THEORETICAL ANALYSIS OF CYCLICAL MOVEMENTS. BY GOTTFRIED VON HABERLER. NEW REVISED AND ENLARGED EDITION. London: Ruskin House; George Allen & Unwin Ltd, 1958 [1938]. Scarce.

A niceoriginal edition of this scarce and fascinating book. Published more than 50 years ago, this book has long been out of print. Such a nice copy isnot likely to come up for sale againsoon on .

From the Preface: "The first edition of this book was written at the suggestion of Alexander Loveday, then Director of the Financial Section and Economic Intelligence SErvice of the League of Nations, during my stay in Geneva as a member of the Secretariat of the LEague. My work was part of a larger project, financed by a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation, onthe causes and cures fo depressions. A later part of the larger project was Professor Tinbergen's celebrated two volumes Statistical Testing of Business Cycle Theories. The first draft of Prosperity and Depression was finished in the Summer of 1936. In august of that year, I had the opportunity of submitting my manuscripts toa conference of experts, among them O. Anderson, J. M. Clark, A. H. Hansen, O. Morgenstern, B. Ohlin, and J. Tinbergen. Their criticisms and suggestions led to extensive revisions. Prior to that conference, I had greatly profited from the criticisms and suggestions of the late Folke Hilgerdt and Rifaat Tirana, of J. B. Condliffe, Marcus Fleming, Alexander Loveday, RAgnar Nurkse, and Luis Rasminsky. The first edition of the book appeared in 1937. I should like to take this opportunity to pay my tribute to that remarkable group of economists at Geneva..."

According to Wikepedia: "Gottfried von Haberler (July 20, 1900, Purkersdorf – May 6, 1995, Washington, D.C.) was an Austrian-American economist. He worked in particular on international trade. Haberler was born in Austria-Hungary in 1900, and was educated in the Austrian School of economics. In 1936 he moved to the United States, joining the economics department at Harvard University. There he worked alongside Joseph Schumpeter.Haberler's two major works were Theory of International Trade (1936) and Prosperity and Depression (1937). In 1957 the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade commissioned a report on the terms of trade for primary commodities, and Haberler was appointed Chairman. The report found that there was a decline in the terms of trade for primary producers, since 1955 commodity prices were said to have fallen by 5%, while industrial prices rose by 6%. Haberler's report seems to prefigure the report written by Raúl Prebisch for the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) in 1964, but when Prebisch's report came out Haberler denounced it. His particular disagreement was with the idea that there was a systematic long-term (secular) decline in the terms of trade. In 1971, Haberler left Harvard to become a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute."
