Meet the Author


John Maynard Keynes (1883–1946) was a British economist. During the Great Depression he published The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money, an enormously influential book positing the revolutionary theory that prolonged recessions are not self-correcting, but require government intervention. This thesis formed the basis of Keynesian economics and shaped government policies in a number of countries for decades.

    The Economic Consequences of The Peace

    A prophetic book about the long-term consequences of retaliation of the I World War winners against Germany. Keynes clearly demonstrates how the harsh conditions imposed to Germany plunged the country in starvation, unemployement, riots, revolutionary plots and eventually open the way to nazism. This book has been ignored and/or obscured for long time since it highlights the blind, greedy behavior of Brits and French and somehow forecasts the great turmoil that swept Europe and the whole World in the years onward. Strongly recommended for scholars really dealing with the human History.
