Présentation de l'éditeur
This second volume contains essays which relate to developments in Keynes' scholarship and theorizing in the years since his death and demonstrates the ongoing validity of the Keynesian tradition.
Keynes always intended to write "footnotes" to his masterwork The General Theory,
which would take account of the criticisms it received and allow him to develop and refine his ideas further. However, a number of factors combined to prevent him from doing so before his death in 1946.
A wide range of Keynes scholars--including James Tobin, Paul Davidson and Lord Skidelsky--have written here the "footnotes" that Keynes never did. This first volume follows the structure of the original, offers attempts to clarify difficult passages and suggest ways in which Keynes might have revised his theory on the light of his subsequent work.
