W. Robert Brazelton
The American Economist, 2019, vol. 64, issue 1, 82-94
This article discusses the generalized economic theories and policy prescriptions of Leon Hirsch Keyserling. Keyserling himself was a major author of the Employment Act of 1946, which created the Council of Economic Advisors. He became a member of the first council and later the second chair of the council, both during the Truman presidency. Keyserling also openly criticized the now-famous â€œAccordâ€ of 1951-1952 between the Treasury and the Federal Reserve. Examination of his work and service links Keyserlingâ€™s later 16 economic policies to his goal of â€œconstant full employment growth.â€ JEL Classifications : E21, E31, E40, E51, N12
