Given ongoing debates, I thought this passage from Hayek's "The Campaign Against Keynesian Inflation" (pp. 210-1 in New Studies, written in the mid-70s, my emphasis) might be of interest:
Such a "secondary depression" caused by an induced deflation should of course be prevented by appropriate monetary counter-measures. Though I am sometimes accused of having represented the deflationary cause of the business cycles as part of the curative process, I do not think that was ever what I argued. What I did believe at one time was that a deflation might be necessary to break the developing downward rigidity of all particular wages which has of course become one of the main causes of inflation. I no longer think this is a politically possible method and we shall have to find other means to restore the flexibility of the wage structure than the present method of raising all wages excep those which must fall relatively to all others.
