The ideas of John Maynard Keynes inspired the New Deal and helped rebuild world economies after World War II - and were later dismissed as "depression economics." Then came the great meltdown of 2008. Market forces that the world relied on suddenly failed to self-correct - and Keynes’s doctrine of corrective action in an imperfect world became more relevant than ever. Keynes was not a traditional economist: In Keynes, noted historian Peter Clarke provides a timely and masterful accounting of Keynes’s life and work, bringing his genius and skepticism alive for an era fraught with economic difficulties that he surely would have relished solving.
