Keynes and Modern Economics

It is a little over seventy years since John Maynard Keynes produced his magnum opus, The General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money. Keynes' staggering achievement has been to remain relevant to economics and other disciplines even today and this book reflects that with an examination on his influence on modern economics. Leading economists from a variety of backgrounds, including Ed Nell and Heinz Kurz have joined forces in this volume with internationally respected Japanese scholars to produce a strong collection of contributions to the debate on Keynes' monumental legacy. This book will be vital reading for historians of economic thought, economic methodologists as well as those economists with an interest in the overall development of their discipline.
