Skidelsky brilliantly synthesizes from John Maynard Keynes''s career and life the aspects of his thinking that apply most directly to today''s world. In so doing, Skidelsky shows that Keynes''s mixture of pragmatism and realism is more pertinent and applicable than ever.
From the Publisher:
Discusses the career and life of John Maynard Keynes and offers nervous capitalists alternatives in the wake of the 2008 financial crash and the faltering of unbridled capitalism. By the author of The World After Communism. Reprint. A BusinessWeek Best Book of the Year.
Annotation:
The name John Maynard Keynes is invoked in times of economic crisis--sometimes, even, by those who have read and understood this influential thinker. Robert Skidelsky, whose multi-volume biography of Keynes is widely regarded as definitive, revisits Keynes for our time. Skidelsky sees Keynes as a practical theorist (not an oxymoron) who understood the uncertainties and imbalances that are part of capitalism, along with its inherent, corrective aspects. He contrasts Keynesian approaches with those of later economists, who mistakenly (but only temporarily, it turns out) tossed Keynes into the dustbin of history. In addition to being a smart read, Skidelsky's study of Keynes provides a glimmer of hope during dark times.
