Notes
  • This paper surveys the banking reform debates in the United States among quantity theorists and their opponents in the years from the banking panic of 1907 through the publication of Irving Fisher's The Purchasing Power of Money (with Harry G. Brown) to the creation of the Federal Reserve System. These debates culminated in the rejection of Fisher's compensated dollar proposal (a price level rule varying the dollar price of gold to stabilize a price index) and the adoption of a very different vision of central banking. Particular attention is paid to the contributions of Fisher, David Kinley, J. L. Laughlin, R. L. Owen, O. M. W. Sprague, and H. Parker Willis.
