171. Harrod to G. Haberler , 14 January 1930 [a]

Christ Church, Oxford #

14 January 1930

Dear Herr Haberler

I must thank you very much for sending me your paper on Robertson, which I read with great interest, and for your kind reference to myself. [1] I think that you are probably right in your criticism of D.H.R.'s neglect of the question of the transfer of productive resources.

I want to tackle the thing again myself, but nothing can be done until we see what Keynes has to say in his Treatise of Money, [2] which he keeps [b] altering, but which will appear in print soon.

I should be so interested to know if you write any more on the subject.

Yours sincerely

R. F. Harrod
