The focus of the nine contributions is on the mutual influences between German and American economic thought. Whereas in the period between 1871 and 1914 the Humboldtian research university was a main attractor for younger American scientists who went to Germany for (post-) graduate studies, WW I and particularly the Nazi period contributed to a decisive shift in the direction of the transfer of knowledge in economics. Émigré economists from Germany and Austria made major contributions to the »Americanization« of economics after WW II.
