Overview

THE ECONOMIC CONSEQUENCES OF THE PEACE was written in the aftermath of the Versailles Treaty which ended the first World War. Keynes, a representative of the British Treasury at the Versailles Conference, came away from the conference believing that Germany had been unfairly treated by the Allies; he argued for a more generous (and in his view, a more lasting) peace with the Central Powers. THE ECONOMIC CONSEQUENCES OF THE PEACE was critical in establishing a general opinion that the Versailles Treaty was an unfair treaty, contributing to negative American public opinion against the treaty and the League of Nations, as well as support for appeasement in Britain during the 1930s.
