Supping At The Table Of A Master,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Essays in Persuasion (Paperback)
Arguably, Keynes is the most consequential economist in the history of the profession and how he thought and argued is a lesson in logic. This is a collection of essays that Keynes wrote for various publications. They dealt with issues of the day and you may well think none of it can be relevant today. I mean, people don't read Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice today, do they? If that's your thinking you can skip this book. But if somewhere in your heart is the desire to rise above the oatmeal that passes for financial commentary in today's newspapers and the drivel in the readers' commentaries section, then you need to sup at the table of a master and see how it's done. This should be on your reading list.
