  Changing the Face of Medicine | Dr. Helen Brooke Taussig
Helen Taussig's mother died when she was only 11, and her grandfather, a physician who had a strong interest in biology and zoology, may also have influenced her decision to become a doctor.
Taussig used fluoroscopy, a new x-ray technique, to establish that babies suffering from anoxemia had a leaking septum (the wall that separates the chambers of the heart), and an underdeveloped artery leading from the heart to the lungs.
In 1954 Helen Taussig received the prestigious Lasker Award for her work on the blue baby operation, and in 1959 she was awarded a full professorship at Johns Hopkins University, one of the first women in the history of the school to hold that rank.

 Frank W. Taussig
Frank W. Taussig, was a student and later colleague of Charles Dunbar at Harvard.
Taussig's prime position at Harvard, his famous 1911 textbook and his control of the Quarterly Journal of Economics helped spread his version of Cambridge Neoclassicism throughout the United States.
Taussig was an opponent of the idea of a "Marginalist Revolution", stressing instead the congruity of Classical and Neoclassical economics.

 Helen Brooke Taussig (www.whonamedit.com)
This fine-tuned sensitivity, combined with her acute powers of observation, led Taussig to one of the most important discoveries in cardiac care in the twentieth century—and to the beginning of open-heart surgery.
When Alfred Blalock came to Johns Hopkins in 1941, Taussig suggested to him that the construction of a patent ductus might provide a solution to the anoxia of children with Fallot’s tetralogy or "blue baby" syndrome, a syndrome caused by a congenital heart defect that deprives the blood of the necessary amount of oxygen.
Taussig received widespread recognition and honours for her contributions to cardiology, including the French Chevalier Legion d'Honneur, the Italian Feltrinelli Prize, the Peruvian Presidential Medal of Honour, and the United States of America Medal of Freedom, given her by President Lyndon B. Johnson.

 DR. HELEN TAUSSIG: "HE’S A LOVELY COLOR NOW!"
Taussig received many honors and awards throughout her medical career.
Taussig began to study the cardiac manifestations of disease, and soon she became interested in congenital heart trouble.
Taussig suggested to him that the construction of a "patent ductus" (open tube) might provide an answer to the anoxia (abnormal decline in the blood’s oxygen content) of children with "Tetralogy of Fallot" (or "blue baby syndrome") Such a dropoff was caused by an inborn heart defect depriving the blood of enough oxygen.

Taussig's enthusiastic research remains a model of what industry studies in economics should be: not mere tales of this or that company or technological advance, but fascinating presentations that filter through the morass of history, politics, and data to address the economic questions at hand.

Taussig himself was considered heir to this line of thought, but he found fault with Brown's assumption that specie flow would take place quickly and would have a rapid effect on prices.
Taussig did not doubt the conclusions of orthodox theory but felt it was poorly adapted to the problems of real, day-to-day trading situations.
Taussig complained in his review that too much emphasis was given to the effects on the distribution of wealth and especially on the development of economic rent.

The objectivist camp represented by John Stuart Mill, Frank Giddings, Frank Taussig, Michael Piori, and Richard Edwards explains wage differences as resulting from the presence of non-competing groups in labor markets.
The subjectivist explanation of wage differences is rooted in Smith's theory of the compensating wage structure where differences in the conditions of work interact with individual preferences to produce wage differences.
Taussig attributed the development of non-competing groups to the expenses of education and training, to the influence of the environment (cultural) and to differences in natural ability.

 Buchanan on the history of US protectionism
Economist Frank Taussig, in a thorough examination of those tariffs, found that they did nothing to promote domestic industry.
"The intrinsic soundness of the argument for protection to young industries therefore may not be touched by the conclusions drawn from the history of its trial in the United States, which shows only that the intentional protection of the tariffs of 1816, 1824, and 1828 had little effect," Taussig said.

 A Tale of Two Tariffs   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-16)
Although the dean of tariff historians, Frank Taussig (1931), contended that this tariff ceased to protect after the 1830s, he lacked the computing tools and masses of data now available to back up his claims.
Then in 1984 Mark Bils and C. Knick Harley wrote articles in the Journal of Economic History arguing that the tariff was absolutely necessary even after the 1830s for the survival of American manufacturing.

 American Journal of Economics and Sociology, The: Introduction - Chapter 1
Harry Gunnison Brown was roughly of the second generation of American economists who followed the pioneering generation that included John Bates Clark, E. Seligman, Frank Taussig, Francis Walker, Simon Patten, Richard Ely, Thomas Nixon Carver, Herbert Davenport and Irving Fisher, among others.
Brown was one of a small group of economists of his era (which included Frank Knight, Irving Fisher, A. Pigou) who really carried the science forward by large steps.
For decades, their work was neglected as the profession pursued one fad after another, but now, as economists have returned, more or less, to their mainstream, they are seeing once again the brilliance and insight of people like H. Brown.

 Equality and the Death Tax
F.W. Taussig argued that, for long-term savings, "the main motives are domestic affection and family ambition." Frank A. Fetter argued that "Much of the existing wealth probably never would have been created if men did not have [the] right of gift."
This allows for what Frank Taussig called "sustained accumulation and permanent investment." This has become more obvious in the last decades, as savings rates have plunged, and as families have had to sell businesses, land, and art treasures to pay the tax.
Yet, in recent days, as the pro-repeal lobby gains a foothold, the cry of fairness and justice is heard in opposition.

Carver composed a history of American agriculture for Bailey's Encyclopedia; and Sprague wrote his "History of Crises under the National Banking System" in the early years of the new century.
Taussig had sprinkled his advanced theory course with Walker and Veblen; he set a doctoral candidate to tracing the vicissitudes over time in the theorists' valuation of entrepreneurship; and he himself surely gave his academic weight to the project of bringing Joseph Schumpeter to Harvard.
