The details (from wikipedia)


Dr. Wilhelm Lautenbach (* August 26, 1891 in Zwinge; † May 24, 1948 in Davos) was a German official at the Economics Ministry at the beginning of the 1920s.

He is known primarily for the so-called Lautenbach Plan. The Plan was discussed at a secret conference on September 16 and 17, 1931 and first rejected but parts of it later implemented by German governments Papen and Schleicher. He has been called "a pre-Keynes Keynesian".

The German economist Wolfgang Stützel who developed the Balances Mechanics (german: Saldenmechanik) appreciates Wilhelm Lautenbach in regard to „his" credit theory of money ("Kreditmechanik"), calls it "Lautenbachsche Kreditmechanik".
