The Book that refounded economics,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money (Great Minds Series) (Taschenbuch)
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?
