Keynes: The Return of the Master


Allen Lane/The Penguin Press 240pp £20 order from our bookshop

Keynes: The Return of the Master is one of those books that induces in the willing reader a mixture of admiration and exasperation. It is, so to speak, two potentially wonderful books that have been half-finished in too much of a hurry. Which is to say that it is well worth reading for its many good moments, but it doesn’t deliver the knockout punch it aims for.
