529R. R. L. Hall to Harrod, 24 February 1936 [a]
Hall comments on Harrod's report on the Oxford Economists' Research Group's interview to Scott-Stokes, which he finds substantially correct.  He hopes that Harrod will tell them "on Saturday to what extent Keynes's new book is a departure (except in terminology) from the Treatise on Money".  Hall has not finished it, but it seems to him that the conclusions seem to follow from the Treatise: "if this is so it is a little unfair to economists to say that it is all new."
2. Harrod later told Robertson (letter 561 , [jump to page] ) that he gave an address before the Political Economy Club on the relation of Keynes and orthodoxy; the paper was later published as "Mr. Keynes and Traditional Theory" (Harrod 1937:4 ). Hall obviously refers to Keynes, The General Theory of Employment, 1936, and A Treatise on Money, 1930 (now in Collected Writings, vols VII, and V and VI, respectively).
