Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Robert Skidelsky's three volume biography of John Maynard Keynes is probably the greatest biography of the 20th century, certainly the greatest biography of an economist. The great achievement of the monumental biography is that the historical actor and even the decision-maker at critical moments is plain to see. This review articles concentrates of Keynes, the economist, in particular on the nature and extent of his contributions to economic theory and practise, how he did economics and what we may learn from this.
