John Maynard Keynes and International Relations

Within three weeks of leaving the Paris Peace Conference, Keynes had begun to write a book on the Treaty and the economic condition of Europe. He was uncertain whether he would persevere with it, but Cecil and others encouraged him to do so, andThe Economic Consequences of the Peacewas published in December 1919. In the months of writing, Keynes was involved in a number of discussions of the needs of post-war reconstruction, including talks with a group of European and American financiers meeting in Amsterdam in October and November. This chapter sets out his role in the Amsterdam process of private financial diplomacy; the argument ofThe Economic Consequences; criticisms against it; its impact in the USA; Keynes’s subsequent role in debate on post-war reconstruction leading up to its sequel,A Revision of the Treaty, which appeared in January 1922; and, briefly, debate on reparations and war debts down to 1933.
