5.0 out of 5 stars An important classic
For many years after the publication of Keynes's General Theory, previous work in the areas of monetary theory and macro-economics was largely ignored. Perhaps inevitably, it has only been since the disadvantages of excessive concentration on fiscal policy to manage the economy have become manifest that alternative approaches have returned to favour.

2.0 out of 5 stars This edition had printing faults
The opening chapter had printing faults that rendered greek letters (I assume they were greek letters) as little squares, like you sometimes see on a poorly maintained website.

It put me off reading much of it.

For many years after the publication of Keynes's General Theory, previous work in the areas of monetary theory and macro-economics was largely ignored. Perhaps inevitably, it has only been since the disadvantages of excessive concentration on fiscal policy to manage the economy have become manifest that alternative approaches have returned to favour. In its insistence that there is no simple solution to a slump caused by the puncturing of a credit boom, this book could hardly be more timely, despite dating back almost a century.

4.0 out of 5 stars So much depth! If only it was clearer!, 16 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I do consider myself to be fairly knowledgeable in economics and I felt like I was getting a lot about the historical debates of money in the first half of this book. However at some point the language and logic of this book get very convoluted where I had to rely on reading guides to grasp the point. It takes a lot of patience to read this book and I would only recommend it to those who wish to achieve a very high level of sophistication In monetary economics.

Absolutely fundamentally important book for anyone interested in economics. An honest, intelligent and incisive explanation and discussion on the issues contained.
