The General Theory Of Employment, Interest, And Money
by John Maynard Keynes

From one of the most influential economists of the modern era, Keynes and his "General Theory" shaped economic thought and government policies for decades to come. Out of this magnum opus arose the Keynesian school of economics. Keynes argues that the level of employment in a modern economy was determined by three factors: the marginal propensity to consume (income that people chose to spend on goods and services), the marginal efficiency of capital (the rate used to see whether investments are worthy) and the rate of interest. This work has enormous implications to the present day in understanding the policies and that have shaped the current environment. "The General Theory is nothing less than an epic journey out of intellectual darkness. That, as much as its continuing relevance to economic policy, is what makes it a book for the ages.

John Maynard Keynes Is The Great British Economist Of The Twentieth Century Whose Hugely Influential Work The General Theory Of Employment, Interest And Money Is Undoubtedly The Century S Most Important Book On Economics Strongly Influencing Economic Theory And Practice, Particularly With Regard To The Role Of Government In Stimulating And Regulating A Nation S Economic Life.

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.
