Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Keynes and Friedman hype from Google Ngram.

In english books: In french books: To follow on my comment in a previous thread: Hollande has been at economical scholl in the 70s, which corresponds in both graphs to a minimum in Keynes hype vs a maximum in Friedman's. And yes, France seems to be be much more keynesianite than the US/UK...

note: if somebody manages to insert an iframe in a comment thread, I'd be glad to transfer this "diary" to the thread it belongs.

How do you distinguish between between Milton and Thomas?

I don't.

Seriously, from a measure/scientific point of view, this exercise is totally futile. It's just a test: I do not know of there is any bias to the corpus of books selected by google. I don't know how many homonymes each of these has, and I'm just relying on the hypothesis that there is a huge prevalence of our two guys over all their clones.
