Today, John Maynard Keynes is best remembered for his pioneering development of macroeconomics, and for his advocacy – based on a radical break from the ‘classical’ economic belief in self-stabilising, self-optimizing markets – of active fiscal and monetary government policy. This uniquely comprehensive selection aims to make this work more accessible to both students of economics and the general reader. Yet the selection goes beyond pure economics. Here too are Keynes’s essential writings on philosophy, social theory and policy – and his futurist vision of a world without work. As Robert Skidelsky writes in his introduction: “People talk of the need for a new Keynes. But the old Keynes still has superlative wisdom to offer for a new age.”
