A series of thirty odd essays on economics Topics range from the gold standard to how bad the Versailles treaty was to the first cogent explanations of deficit spending and the multiplier effect Keynes essays are also very clear, precise, and even witty, a rare breed in economics Although these positions are now some eighty years old, it is remarkable to see how many of them hold up most notably, criticism of austerity after the Great Depression If people are inclined to save, then less money i [...]

Wow A truly exceptional intellect The only amazingly frustrating thing about the book is that someone thought it was appropriate to use a typeface so large that you get dizzy The average sentence is probably 70 words, yet each line fits maybe 7 words Anyway, some excerpts The power to become habituated to his surroundings is a marked characteristic of mankind the nature of assemblies If all the parties to the Treaty are unanimously of opinion that it requires alteration in a particular sense, it [...]

What a clear headed human The compilation of essays by JM Keynes is best taken in instalments It is an omnium gatherum of pellucid and well reasoned predictions, positions and commentaries on politics, economy, philosophy, and a bonus review of H.G Wells s book The World of William Clissold.I will definitely read it than twice.


Jonathan Norton

Collection of Keynes writings published in 1931, mostly concerned with topics that were already passing away as he recognised Versailles and the German war reparations war debts generally the Gold Standard the struggles of European governments to adjust to new post war economic conditions and the temptation of damaging policies aimed at restoring pre 1914 normality The Economic Consequences Of Mr Churchill is here, with its residual interest as a reminder that Winston wasn t always great, and th [...]

Awesome book.

I read this book because it contains the essay Economic possibilities for our grandchildren , written in 1930 Keynes predicts on that essay that within 100 years time mankind would solve its economic problem thanks to the increases on productivity, and would be able to cover the absolute needs leaving much time for leisure.The author distinguishes between absolute needs and relative needs The needs of food, water or shelter, are absolute on the sense that we feel them whatever the situation of [...]

Although this book was written between the World Wars, it is very much a book of our time It has insight into where we are currently, what we ought to be doing now, and where we could well go next There are three aspects of the book that are worth noting 1 In the 1920s, the great currency question was German reparations This is very similar to our current pattern of sovereign indebtedness In both cases, the currency question which is, essentially, a monetary question led to an asset bubble.2 In [...]

Peter Keller, president of polling company YouGov has chosen to discuss John Maynard Keynes s Essays in Persuasion, on FiveBooks as one of the top five on his subject British Democracy, saying that Every essay is readable and compelling This volume spans the aftermath of the First World War and his assault on the Versailles Treaty and the damage it was going to cause as it did, because in humiliating Germany it led, arguably, to Germany choosing Adolf Hitler right through to the 1920s and 30s an [...]

I originally picked this up in preparation for a class that ended up being cancelled It is difficult to review this from an economic standpoint, as my knowledge of this area is woefully lacking, but what I can speak to is the clarity of the mind that wrote the 30 essays included in the book This book is dense, it has taken me a good 5 months of dipping in and out to complete this book, but what stands out is Maynard s ability to research articulate very complex and in some cases technical ideas [...]

This is really a collection of Keynes articles on a couple of economic subjects Imagine if Paul Krugman wrote somewhat longer pieces And then someone selected about 25 at random from a 10 year period between 1918 and 1935 I know, not 10 years That s roughly this collection.In today s environment, Keynes s argument for inflation to increase employment seems timely And he can be an engaging writer from time to time But some of the argument seems muddled by the dignified language It is much less di [...]


Gabriel Pinkus

Keynes essay at the end on the economic future of the world was the most fascinating essay in the book by far Some of this was quite dense, and a bit too much about currencies, monetary policies, and politics than I care for Overall, I thought it was a good primer on Keynes himself.He was quite prescient with regards to the end of WWI and treaties as well as the long term economic growth of the modern world.
