A Treatise on Money, Volume 1

PDF EBook by John Maynard Keynes

EBook Description

Keynes deserves credit as one of the architects of modern life. A Treatise on Money, Volume 1 PDF EBook More important to a reader, he was a fascinating man. A member of the Bloomsbury set, he whiled away much of his twenties musing with Virginia Woolf, EM Forster, Lytton Strachey, Clive Bell and others who cared deeply for good writing. As might be expected then, Keynes' prose holds up well. Of course, Keynes was also privy to remarkable personal experiences - PDF he was sitting at Lloyd Georges' side for much of the Versailles negotiations. That experience prompted his most accessible book, the 1919 best seller The Economic Consequences of the Peace. In that work Keynes makes the case that the terms imposed on Germany at the close of the First World War would prove 'unendurable' and he fears for the manner in which "men might seek to escape their misfortunes". For me the most interesting angle of that work is Keynes' case that seemingly trivial details of the meeting prevented Wilson, in particular, from standing up to Clemenceau. The sketches of these players are remarkable. I am persuaded that Keynes had a remarkable knack for seeing to the core of a person's motivations and weaknesses. If all his subject matters had stood up to the attrition of time as well as Keynes' writing has, this would be a five star book. Like this book?
