The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money [Paperback]

John Maynard Keynes


Available from these sellers.



Book Description

6 Aug 2013
The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money was written by the English economist John Maynard Keynes. The book, generally considered to be his magnum opus, is largely credited with creating the terminology and shape of modern macroeconomics. It sought to bring about a revolution, commonly referred to as the "Keynesian Revolution", in the way economists thought – especially in relation to the proposition that a market economy tends naturally to restore itself to full employment after temporary shocks. Regarded widely as the cornerstone of Keynesian thought, the book challenged the established classical economics and introduced important concepts such as the consumption function, the multiplier, the marginal efficiency of capital, the principle of effective demand and liquidity preference.

The book is a horrible reprint. The scanned diagrams were blurry and pretty much unreadable. I had to order another edition. It was such a waste of time and money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review? Really? Agree or disagree with Keynes, The General Theory is the Bible of economics. 22 Dec 2013
By always question - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read portions of this classic in the past. But, given the current economy, decided to read the entire work. Keynes is still the starting point for most economic discussions, for or against. It is what it is, classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant analysis 9 Oct 2013
By Hamilton Cravens - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
the foundational analysis of contemporary economies that shows the fallacies of neo-classical economics but unfortunately lacks the microeconomic mathematical analysis that makes it plausible to many right wing economists.
