Keynes is back in fashion. In the wake of the financial crisis 10 years ago and now in response to the economic impact of the coronavirus, governments round the world have had to step in to support demand in the economy. It was Keynes who first theorised about why governments should respond in such a way. This single volume biography of Keynes covers his intellectual and public life.
Charles Morris, author and ex-banker commented to us: “What’s so wonderful about Keynes was that he didn’t trust economics. He understood that this was a human study, that it was not a scientific or mathematical study…that economics is a metaphor for complex, semi-random, not very rational human interaction.
