In The Keynesian Episode, he presents a comprehensive review of Keynes's General Theory, including the finest critique to date of the Acceleration Principle. He questions the very legitimacy of Keynes's fundamental epistemology. In Hutt's discussion of economics there is a refreshing emphasis on the vital importance of the market price system as a coordinating process. As Dr. Hutt wrote: "The intellectual developments for which Keynes's General Theory appeared to be responsible had caused a setback to scientific thinking about human economic relations at a crucial epoch. Keynes tried to find in the factors determining the value of the money unit the genesis of output and income. . . .
