It can hardly be given sole credit as the inspiration for Roosevelt's platform.
Here are a few of the publications that contributed:
Charles A. Beard, “The Rationality of Planned Economy,” in America Faces the Future (1932)
Rexford G. Tugwell, “The Principle of Planning and the Institution of Laissez-Faire,” American Economic Review (1932)
Stuart Chase, A New Deal (1932)
Chester Davis, “Toward Planned Harvests,” Review of Reviews (1933)
Maxwell S. Stewart, “Where Everyone Has a Job,” Survey Graphic (1931)
It does seem to have been the inspiration for the popular name of the program. I had always thought I had heard an FDR quote, "...a new deal for all Americans," but cannot find a reference. Can anyone help on that?
