早稲田大学現代政治経済研究所と日本金融学会歴史部会は、Rutgers大学Hugh Rockoff教授(Economic History Association次期会長)をお招きしてセミナーを企画しています。みなさまのご参加をお待ちしています。

日時:2019年3月20日(水)午後4時~5時30分
会場:早稲田大学早稲田キャンパス 3号館 9階 909教室
講演者:Professor Hugh Rockoff (Rutgers University)
演題:On the Controversies behind the Origins of the Federal Economic Statistics
Abstract:
Although attempts to measure trends in prices, output, and employment can be traced back for centuries, in the main the origins of the U.S. federal statistics are to be found in bitter debates over economic policy, ultimately debates over the distribution of income, at the end of the nineteenth century and during the world wars and Great Depression. Participants in those debates hoped that statistics that were widely accepted as nonpolitical and accurate would prove that their grievances were just and provide support for the policies they advocated. Economists – including luminaries such as Irving Fisher, Wesley C. Mitchell, and Simon Kuznets – responded by developing the methodology for computing index numbers and estimates of national income. Initially, individuals and private organizations provided these statistics, but by the end of WWII the federal government had taken over the role. Here I briefly describe the cases of prices, GDP, and unemployment.
