La «Teoria generale dell'occupazione», dell'interesse e della moneta - opera capitale del pensiero novecentesco - viene qui presentata nella traduzione di Giorgio La Malfa con un ampio commento a cura di La Malfa e Giovanni Farese che ne illumina non solo i riferimenti storici e dottrinali, ma anche i profondi legami con i maggiori intellettuali del tempo, da Virginia Woolf a T.S. Eliot, frequentati da Keynes nella fucina londinese di Bloomsbury. Il volume raccoglie inoltre una messe di scritti precedenti e successivi alla pubblicazione della «Teoria generale», ad essa strettamente correlati, incluse le prefazioni d'autore alle varie edizioni straniere nonché gli scritti con cui Keynes ha inteso difendere il valore delle sue idee.

One of the hardest things in the world for anyone do to is to change their mindset. Keynes, who suckled at the teats of classical economists, took off the emerald glass spectacles he was given to wear, and took a long hard look at the Depression-era. He had in his life also variously been a business Leggi tutto
Bad writing, confused thinking, pernicious policies. I first encountered the name Keynes when reading a Time magazine article in around 1975 about West Germany's chancellor Helmut Schmidt. As I recall, the article was a complimentary one, in which Schmidt was portrayed as an intellectual technocrat w Leggi tutto
It is my firm conviction that, if something’s worth doing, it’s worth doing even when you’re badly under-qualified to do it. So here I go! Few books have inspired as much controversy as John Maynard Keynes' magnum opus. Revered on the left, abhorred on the right, the book has been dragged back into Leggi tutto
I think most of these reviews are Ron Paul supporters that don't really understand monetary theory AT ALL. No problem with that however, other than they project their own new version of what Adam Smith said. If they understood Adam Smith and John Maynard Keynes, they would realize that they espouse
5 stars for the ideas and theories, which are undeniably right (even thought it's impossible to convince the people who read Atlas Shrugged as though it's real). But 3 stars because it is incredibly dense and hard to read. I got through it, but only because I knew what the theory was already and I j Leggi tutto
The importance of this book rivals Das Kapital. Those who follow Marx have founded Communist regimes. Everywhere else, governments have developed systems of national accounts to conform to his proposed system of national accounts with headings such as GNP, GDP, etc. One major difference is that Das K Leggi tutto
It's a brutal read, especially the middle third. With an intense focus on the fundamental nature of the three factors mentioned in the title, it's easy to get bored and distracted quickly. Nonetheless, reading the General Theory reminds me of watching Citizen Kane. The book has so thoroughly reshaped Leggi tutto
During my high school years I followed courses in economics. Ever since, my interest has been sparked to follow macro-economic trends and from time to time read some classic economic works. I've read Smith, Ricardo, Hayek and now Keynes. I haven't finished the book - I quit reading after part 3. Thi Leggi tutto
This certainly is not a book for a quick enjoyable read. I am a Keynesian in my economic beliefs as a result of this book. As we are continuing the crazy response to the current economic crisis, I highly recommend this book to everyone who cares about money and our economy.
I learned Keynesian economics in my macroeconomics course I took as an undergrad. It is the leftwing side of mainstream economics and was the dominant model in the post-WWII era until the seventies when we got Hayek and Friedman and neoliberalism which ruined a lot of lives. I vacillate between Key
