Thanks, Martin.  I wouldn't expect "any experiments that have taken place
 before Douglas to be able to make use of his techniques."  That would be
expecting too much, indeed.  But what about after Douglas?

In looking for something else, I came across this passage from Douglas in
"The Development of World Dominion".  It's numbered 120, on page 98 of that
book, and dated,  Dec. 17, 1949.  Which is when I believe it first appeared
in TSC.  It states:-

"Probably not many of our readers see Mr. Manning's paper "The Canadian
Social Crediter", but for the benefit of those overseas who do we may issue
a note of warning against the technical inaccuracies which are beginning to
reinforce its politics.  For instance, the Keynesian fallacy adopted by Mr.
Vincent Vickers that "spending new money into existence" is a cure for the
flaw in the price system is being rather subtly substituted for the
application of new money to the reduction of prices AT THE TIME OF PURCHASE.

" "Time" is one of those subjects that seems to offer great difficulties to
most people, but it does not appear too much to ask for the consideration of
the difference between, say, paying out new money for a hydro-electric
scheme which will "sell" nothing for five years, and paying out the same
amount of money to reduce the cost of power.

" Of course, the international finance groups have no objection whatsoever
to the former course ~ it is almost as good a method of raising prices and
promoting loans as having a good war.

"The most charitable, and probably in the main, correct explanation of the
disappearance of everything but the name of Social Credit from the Alberta
Government is that its executives have entirely "lost the thread of the
story";  that beyond wishing to retain office, they have no policy."

I find that passage quite interesting, in that aside from any differences
between the ASCP and Douglas, he states quite clearly that "spending new
money into existence" as many so-called 'Social Credit' Parties, and others,
have advocated and still advocate,  "as a cure for the flaw in the price
system"  is a Keynesian fallacy.  Do you think it's a 'fallacy', Martin, or
was Douglas all wrong?

Joe
