215R. E. H. Phelps Brown to Harrod, 1 August 1931 [a]

Follows on from 199 R and 202 R, replies to a letter not extant. Brown continues reporting on his activities in the United States, mentioning that he has been working under Henry Schultz. He suggests that economists at Oxford should break the traditional association with historians and philosophers, and should align instead with the natural scientists. He maintains that a proper "school" should be founded, and that the mathematical and statistical literature should be made easily available, as well as calculating machines.
