Comments to eBook John Maynard Keynes 1883-1946 : Economist, Philosopher, Statesman
greed style
A remarkable achievement by the foremost contemporary biographer of Keynes, the University of Warwick's Lord Robert Skidelsky. The third and final volume details Keynes's pivotal role in creating the key institutions of post-1945 global economics. Of particular interest is the defeat of Keynes's proposal for a new currency-Bancor-to be used exclusively by central banks in a new International Clearing Union to prevent imbalances in the international economic system. Wall Street won that battle, with fateful consequences. Resurrecting this long forgotten proposal and tailoring it to the crises of the 21st Century would be a crucial first step away from the disastrous failures of unregulated finance and banking and the delusions of the Reagan-Thatcher era.

The name Keynes or Keynesian economics is mentioned almost every day in financial and political publications. However, very few of the commentators actually talk about who Dr. Keynes was or how his thinking about economics developed and changed over time. Seldom is he given credit for developing the school of economics know and macroeconomist. Instead, his name is usually mentioned with government spending and huge deficits to finance public works projects.

However, Keynes and his economics philosophies are about much more than what is talked about today. In fact, Keynes did believe in running budget deficits during recessions. However, he also believed that during boom times, governments should run surpluses to pay down the public debt--a point that is often overlooked by today's commentators.

Mr. Skidelsky presents an excellent overview of the life of one of the most influential thinkers in economics. I especially enjoyed the chapters that dealt with Dr. Keynes during the Second World War and how he helped that British manage the finances for the war.

Overall, the book is very good and I recommend it to anyone who is interested in economics or finance.

For many Americans Skidelsky's three volumes on Keynes will restore Keynes to a prominent
place in the political and economic leadership of the post-world war period. Far too many think
Winston Chuchill was the sole intellectual leader of all Britain in that period. Let's re-promote the
life and thinking of John Maynard Keynes by Robert Skidelsky in 2016. America needs this wise
man's thinking. The sooner the better in my opinion.

This is what you might call a nice, workman-like march through the life of JM Keynes. It was a valuable read for me because I learned and re-learned a good bit about events on the world stage from about 1910 through Keynes's death just after WWII. I also got a tangential refresher on Bloomsbury.
As to economic theory, I didn't learn much. Not at all because I was already up on Keynes and demand management and such. No, Skidelsky is not a professional economist- he does not spend his days at the university commons or the IMF cafeteria, chewing over the fundamental ideas of economic theory. So it just hasn't sunk into his bones so deeply that he can easily state the basics in clear, complete and simple terms. Of course, this may chalk up to my shortcomings as a reader, but I was motivated and re-read carefully, and quite frankly the mumbo jumbo didn't always add up.
Also, Skidelsky does spend much time thinking about Keyne's sexuality. Maybe that is a wise professional choice in that it would have required a lot of ethereal philosophising. Still, during his youth, Keynes was a committed and in many ways open homosexual. Next thing you know he marries a woman and lives happily with her for the next 20 plus years. It points up some fascinating questions about the range of human sexuality and its biological and social determinants. Skidelsky doesn't really ask them. Too bad. I mean, I ive in 2016 America when so many people easily accept the humanity of gay people, and so many others are uncomfortable with homosexuality, and so much is in flux. It would have been pretty timely but Skidelsky stays on the surface.
