Today (2008/2009), Keynes' analysis and approach has again become more predominant in economic theory and practise.

The General Theory is the fruit of Keynes' study of the "classics" (for Keynes = anyone preceding him!) and the Great Depression. The theory is one mainly to include depression situations, too. That's why he calls it "General" and "of employment, interest and money".
Keynes focuses on paradoxa and instincts instead of on an artificial Homo Oeconomicus.
He sees the state as helpful to solve in the short-term - "In the long run, we are all dead" -, but neither is he a blind state-follower. Keynes sure is different from Keynesianism, Neokeynesianism, Marxism, Neoliberalism, ... he seems to be quite proud of his nonconformism and turns to sarcastic aphorisms here and there. These also make the book more readable.

On this edition: the 380 pages plus index look like a photographic reprint of the original.
Maths surely helps if you aim for 100%, but you will get the conclusions in all cases. To non-native speakers: Keynes' English is finest British E. There are more systematic writers than Keynes, for sure, though. And there are points that might be outdated, but judge for yourself.

2008/09 seems to illustrate what John Maynard Keynes described already in 1935/36, 73 years ago! The federal bank has no interest tool any longer then, as there cannot be an interest rate even lower than zero.

Hopefully, enough people might re-read this book and/or other good analysis to step beyond the naive, almost religious belief in "Market" etc. that have been blinding too many for too long.

((A personal recommendation to German readers: Abschied vom Homo Oeconomicus: Warum wir eine neue ökonomische Vernunft brauchen: unorthodox synthesis approach to economics by Gunter Dueck. Beyond Keynes, whilst incorporating him.))

Anfangs ist die Sprache Keynes etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig, doch daran gewöhnt man sich schnell und kann sich somit auf den Inhalt stürzen. Dieser ist sehr interessant, wenn man sich ein wenig damit auseinandersetzt. Ein Verständnis entsteht, woher die Annahmen und Modelle, welche heutzutage in der den Universitäten und Forschungsinstituten angewandt werden, stammen.
Ein MUSS für VWLer - so wie ich finde!

Here it is: the masterpiece of 20th century macro econ, and one of the last important books in which the argument advances by reasoning rather than by calculation. An enormous influence on Everybody, it broke new ground by considering things like interest, inflation, money and unemployment: all things which had really had no existence in formal economics before Keynes. It is NOT Keynes' most accessible book, and no doubt he would have changed much had he lived, but everyone, including the new classical economists, owe much of their thought to this volume.During the '80's it became fashionable to deride Keynes, particularly among those who had never read him. Like big purple hair, this fashion seems to have past. But see review below for a throwback.This is the book that created macroeconomics... and asks questions that have retained their interest. What more could one ask?

Here's a book every economist and everybody interested in economics should read, it's not an easy to read book, but if read carefully, it can show us some problems we are still suffering from in the modern economies and practical ways of dealing with them. Much has been said about this author who has been derided for a long time now, but I bet few have read the man himself, and if he was labeled the greatest economist of the 20th century, he should be respected as such or at least be read before making any comment. Freedom of Choice shouldn't be irresponsible. Remember that the survival of laissez faire may be due to post-war keynesian policies.

Der Inhalt ist selbstverständlich, das ist wohl unumstritten, weltbekannte Literatur, über die man unterschiedlichster Meinung sein kann. Klar ist auch, dass für 12,90 Euro nicht ein großartiges, perfektes Buch erwartet werden kann. Dementsprechend ist die Qualität des Buches in Anbetracht des Preises in Ordnung, sie könnte aber besser sein - ist eben "nur" ein Taschenbuch...

This book served as the bible for economist for the later part of the 20th century. To fully understand this one must have some marco-economic background. I recommend the reader to brush up on his/her mathematical (Calculus and Linear Algebra) and Statistical skills as well before confront this book.

Page 383.
The ideas of economist and political philosophers, both when they are right and wrong, are more powerful than commonly understood. Indeed the world is ruled by little else. Practical men, who belive themselves to be quite exempt from any ntellectual influences, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist. Madmen in authority, who hear voices in the air, are still distilling thier frenzy from some academic scribbler of a few years past. I am sure that the power of vested interests is vastly exaggerated compared with the gradual enroachment of ideas.

This is an outstanding text by one of the fathers of economic theory. Should be in every serious economists collection! No other book rivals it in it's insights and ingenuity. Keynes is the god of the economic world.

Das Buch sieht von der Druckqualität aus wie eine mittelmäßige Kopie. Die Seiten sind unterschiedlich deutlich wiedergegeben. Ich empfehle eine andere Ausgabe zu bestellen.
