The Keynesian Revolution in the Making, 1924–1936

Peter Clarke


This book tells the story of the argument over the performance of the British economy in the period of depression between the two World Wars. Keynes's ideas were central to the debate. The book explains Keynes's theories and their impact. It follows the course of the argument in which Keynes was engaged — into the province of government, the arena of politics, and the discipline of economics — over a period of a dozen years. This is a penetrating study of one of the major thinkers of the twentieth century.

Keywords: British economy, depression, Keynes, government, economics
