The Essential Keynes
The essential writings of the 20th century’s most influential economist, collected in one volume

Today, John Maynard Keynes is best remembered for his pioneering development of macroeconomics, and for his advocacy of active fiscal and monetary government policy. This uniquely comprehensive selection of his work, edited by Keynes’s award-winning biographer Robert Skidelsky, aims to make his work more accessible to both students of economics and the general reader. All of Keynes’s major economic work is included, yet the selection goes beyond pure economics. Here too are Keynes’s essential writings on philosophy, social theory and policy, and his futurist vision of a world without work. As Robert Skidelsky writes in his introduction: “People talk of the need for a new Keynes. But the old Keynes still has superlative wisdom to offer for a new age.”

The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money: With the Economic Consequences of the Peace (Classics of World Literature)

John Maynard Keynes (1883-1946) is perhaps the foremost economic thinker of the twentieth century. On economic theory, he ranks with Adam Smith and Karl Marx; and his impact on how economics was practiced, from the Great Depression to the 1970s, was unmatched.

The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money was first published in 1936. But its ideas had been forming for decades - as a student at Cambridge, Keynes had written to a friend of his love for 'Free Trade and free thought'. Keynes's limpid style, concise prose, and vivid descriptions have helped to keep his ideas alive - as have the novelty and clarity, at times even the ambiguity, of his macroeconomic vision. He was troubled, above all, by high unemployment rates and large disparities in wealth and income. Only by curbing both, he thought, could individualism, 'the most powerful instrument to better the future', be safeguarded. The twenty-first century may yet prove him right.

In The Economic Consequences of the Peace (1919), Keynes elegantly and acutely exposes the folly of imposing austerity on a defeated and struggling nation.

The Economic Consequences of Peace
John Maynard Keynes (5 June 1883 – 21 April 1946), was a British economist whose ideas have profoundly affected the theory and practice of modern macroeconomics, as well as the economic policies of governments. He greatly refined earlier work on the causes of business cycles, and advocated the use of fiscal and monetary measures to mitigate the adverse effects of economic recessions and depressions. In the 1930s, Keynes spearheaded a revolution in economic thinking, overturning the older ideas of neoclassical economics. His ideas are the basis for the school of thought known as Keynesian economics. The Economic Consequences of the Peace was written in 1919. Keynes attended the Versailles Conference as a delegate of the British Treasury and argued for a much more generous peace. It was a best seller throughout the world and was critical in establishing a general opinion that the Versailles Treaty was a "Carthaginian peace". It helped to consolidate American public opinion against the treaty and involvement in the League of Nations.

Probability: A Treatise on Probability. A proposal to probability that was more subject to variation with evidence and proof
A Treatise on Probability was printed by John Maynard Keynes while at Cambridge University. The Treatise criticized the classical theory of probability and introduced a "logical-relationist" theory instead. Bertrand Russell, the co-author of Principia Mathematica, described it as "undoubtedly the most important work on probability that has emerged for a very long time," and a "book as a whole is one which it is impossible to praise too highly." The Treatise is primarily philosophical in nature notwithstanding extensive mathematical formulations. The Treatise presented a proposal to probability that was more subject to variation with evidence than the profoundly quantified standard version. Keynes's notion of probability is that it is a rigorously logical relation between proof and hypothesis, a degree of partial association. Keynes's Treatise is the definitive account of the reasonable interpretation of probabilistic logic, a view of probability that has been maintained by such later efforts as Carnap's Logical Foundations of Probability and E.T. Jaynes Probability Theory: The Logic of Science. Keynes saw numerical probabilities as special cases of probability, that did not have to be quantifiable or even comparable.
