I don't think so, Daniel...many instances of recurring or similar ideas popping up across different periods can be found throughout intellectual history.I talked with Current and a few others about what I perceived as an uncanny resemblance between the Real Bills Doctrine and Post-Keynesian formulations of "Endogenous Money" on this blog some time ago.http://factsandotherstubbornthings.blogspot.com/2013/05/a-thought-on-minsky-and-rothbard-that.html?showComment=1369905368141#c6106101841211835453I also shared my thoughts with J.P. Koning, who seemed to agree with my observation.http://jpkoning.blogspot.com/2013/06/real-or-unreal-sorting-out-various-real.html?showComment=1371289940264Even David Glasner seemed to agree with me.http://uneasymoney.com/2013/08/01/my-milton-friedman-problem/#comment-21366
