Evans and Honkapohja: Do you feel that your work contributed to the Lucas critique?
Sargent: It depends what you mean by ‘contribute’. Lucas attended a conference on rational expectations at the University of Minnesota in the spring of 1973. The day after the conference, I received a call from Pittsburgh. Bob had lost a manuscript and thought he might have left it at the conference. I went to the room in Ford Hall at which we had held the conference and found a folder with yellow sheets in it. I looked at the first few pages. It was Bob’s Critique. I mailed the manuscript back to Bob. So, yes, I contributed to the Critique.
Лучше бы уж за это ему премию дали.
