452R. J. M. Keynes to Harrod, 26 June 1935 [a]
Follows on from 450 R, continues at 453 R. Keynes suggests that for the Antwerp conference "it would be very suitable if you were to make a short paper of your suppressed Chatham House memorandum". 
The preliminary section of Harrod's note for the conference ("A Comment on the Questions for Discussion", 1935:5 , pp. 40-41) follows in content the premise of Harrod 1933 Chatham House memorandum "Continuity of Values and the Long-Term International Problem": on the explanation of the world slump based on the consequences of the war see essay 13 , [jump to page] , on its subsumption under the heading of the trade cycle see [jump to page] . This suggests that Harrod may have indeed followed Keynes's suggestion. The subject was discussed again and expanded a few months later, in a lecture on "The Choice of a Currency Policy" delivered before the British Import Union in Copenhagen on 10 January 1936 (essay 16 ).
