Dear Josef, 
Many thanks for your letter and for all the information. We are 
very pleased to learn that there is a good chance of seeing you again 
in Sils in the 2nd half of July. 
I just had a session with a Stanford student who is writing a 
dissertation apparently inspired mainly by your book and to some 
extent also by Kalecki’s work. (Especially his principle of increasing 
risk.) His argument, I am told, is quite close to an argument Hyman 
Minsky has been making about the current US problem; and I am very 
much interested in the connection between your and Minsky’s argument, 
which somehow has so far escaped me. Minsky writes very obscurely; 
but his forthcoming short paper in the May-June issue of Challenge 
is reasonably clear, should you be interested. J am getting an 
outline of the student’s dissertation in a few days and will probably 
reread your Maturity and Stagnation soon in order to get straight on 
the whole subject in my own mind. As you know, Tarshis and I are 
writing a book on macroeconomics, in * which we will have to deal with 
that whole subject. 
I hope you enjoyed your trip to Paris; we shall be going there 
for a few days too, next month after a conference in Frankfurt I shall 
be attending soon. 
With best regards and great hopes for our meeting in July, 
Yours ever,
