Quotes about Hutt
- The free-market economist who devoted more time and effort than anyone else to dissecting Keynes was W. H. Hutt, Professor of Economics at the University of Cape Town. Unlike other market economists, he recognized from the beginning the revolutionary character of The General Theory and its threat to the free market. His "intense dissatisfaction" with Keynes's theory of unemployment caused him to write his first major work, The Theory of Idle Resources, in 1939.
