In the wake of the Great Depression, Keynes advocated that governments spend vast anounts of money to create jobs and prosperity. His ideas revolutionized government and helped create an economic consensus that was shattered only by the monetarism of Reagan and Thatcher's 1980s.
Keynes himself was a complex man: an establishment figure who married a Russian ballerina in spite of his homosexuality. He was passionate about the arts and considered by all who met him to be supremely clever.
Peter Pugh and Chris Garratt's graphic introduction is the essential read for anyone keen to understand this brilliant man and prophetic thinker.
