Example text

In the event, continued Harrod, Hansen’s memorandum ‘was very much in line with [Keynes’s ideas] in the Means to Prosperity’ written some years earlier. Hansen later attended the BW Conference. It is to be regretted, therefore, that his postBW work on international financial problems has been overlooked; it is, in fact, substantial. Hansen provided a distinctive doctrine for reforming the international financial order as it evolved from 1945 to the late 1960s. His ideas on specific aspects of the international financial system as constituted by the BW Agreement changed on matters of detail as the system altered with events.

Equally, they believed, the international economy did not possess an automatic mechanism which would achieve and sustain full employment – deliberate intergovernmental action and cooperation were required. Following Keynes, Hansen and other Keynesians wished to reconstruct international financial arrangements so that they did not unduly rely on the impersonal, automatic forces of an international gold standard. Uppermost in Hansen’s mind were the perceived failings of gold standards which Hansen’s Keynesian interpretation of BW 37 relied on inflation in surplus countries and deflation in deficit countries to secure international payments adjustment.

In the medium to long run, the fixed exchange rate rule had an escape clause if the short-term policy ‘shading’ process was unsuccessful in restoring stability. In the case of deficit countries, a ‘fundamental’, persistent deficit warranted currency devaluation. While ‘fundamental disequilibrium’ is not formally defined by BW architects, ‘there was never much doubt’ in their minds (according to Williamson) what the term meant in practice; it was a ‘situation in which a country could not expect to achieve basic balance over the [business] cycle as a whole without deflating output from full capacity or restricting trade or payments for balance of payments reasons’ (Williamson 1985: 74).
