This book examines the life of John Maynard Keynes, explores his influential writings and theories, and assesses his legacy. Davidson looks at the life of Keynes leading up to the writing of his seminal General Theory, and traces the roots of this work in Keynes's early influences, as well as examining the General Theory in detail, and exploring how it differs from classical theory. The impact of Keynes's work on the economy postwar and up to the present day is also assessed.
