ABSTRACT
The article analyzes the spread of economic ideas based on a case study of the diffusion of Keynesian economics in two continental European countries, Belgium and Italy. It looks at the factors that determine the dissemination of economic ideas, distinguishing also between the academic world and economic policy-making. The similarities between Belgium and Italy are noted which include the strong position of neo-classical economics, the breakthrough of hydraulic Keynesianism and the rise of Keynesianism in the poorer parts of the two countries.
