Description - Maynard Keynes by Donald Moggridge
John Maynard Keynes, the most influential economist of the twentieth century, made a unique contribution to public affairs and to Britain's cultural life. Drawing on an unrivalled knowledge of Keynes, gained from twenty years' editing of his papers, D.E. Moggridge has taken a fresh and revealing look at the man and his achievements. He traces Keynes' career on all its levels, from academic Cambridge, to artistic Bloomsbury, to official Whitehall and to the City. Particular attention is paid to the role of Lydia Lopokova, the Russian ballerina, whom Keynes married in 1925. She provided Keynes with the stability that took him from being a successful academic economist to creating two pioneer works of economic theory, A Treatise on Money (1930) and The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money (1936). With its careful documentation of all aspects of Keynes' life, its intimate knowledge of the subject and Keynes' many worlds, this biography establishes a new benchmark in the study of Keynes.
