Description

In the debris of the financial crash of 2008, the principles of John Maynard Keynes,that economic storms are a normal part of the market system, that governments need to step in and use fiscal ammunition to prevent these storms from becoming depressions, and that societies that value the pursuit of money should reprioritize,are more pertinent and applicable than ever. In Keynes: The Return of the Master , Robert Skidelsky brilliantly synthesizes Keynes career and life, and offers nervous capitalists a positive answer to the question we now face: When unbridled capitalism falters, is there an alternative?show more
