Overview

In 1936 Keynes published the most provocative book written by any economist of his generation. The General Theory, as it is known to all economists, cut through all the Gordian Knots of pre-Keynesian discussion of the trade cycle and propounded a new approach to the determination of the level of economic activity, the problems of employment and unemployment and the causes of inflation. Arguments about the book continued until his death in 1946 and still continue today. Despite all that has been written in the subsequent years, Keynes and his book still represent the turning point between the old economics and the new from which each generation of economists needs to take its inspiration.

Big and complex and difficult to read, but then again you probably know that before going into this technical guide to crises written by a hoity-toity perfesser from 1930's England. Not much to add that people don't already know about this book, but I do love a few of the "Governments would never be so dumb as to do this..." parts, usually referring to something done in response to the current global melt-down. (For example, internal devaluation.) Keynes: Making it clear that the world is being run by its worst people since 1936.

As seen in other comments, the book is complex and difficult to read. A good critical companion reading is "Time and Money: The Macroeconomics of Capital Structure" by Roger W. Garrison. Also, as a general criticism of NookStudy, this (and most books) purchased do not allow for copying or printing, which makes referencing much more difficult. Other readers, such as VitalSource, provide these functions.
