Prof. Dr. Moritz Julius Bonn (1873-1965) was a Jewish-German economist and one of the leading experts in this field in the Weimar Republic. As soon as the Nazis came to power he was dismissed from university, and emigrated to the UK and the US. See Clavin, P., ‘A ‚Wandering Scholar‘ in Britain and the USA, 1933–1945.
