In 1969, Harry G. Johnson, professor at the University of Chicago and London School of Economics, published a polemical brief in favor of exchange-rate flexibility, “The Case for Flexible Exchange Rates, 1969.” Johnson’s title alluded to Milton Friedman’s celebrated original essay (written in 1950), which advocated floating exchange rates as a way to break the convertibility logjam then impeding the liberalization of world trade and payments.
