This is the worst global turndown since the Great Depression. But it is highly unlikely to be as bad. The years 1929-32 saw twelve successive quarters of economic contraction.

The Crisis of Communism at the end of the 1980's was hailed as a triumph for Western capitalism, but initial euphoria soon turned to pessimism as the West failed to react adequately to the momentous changes that were taking place in the "new world order." While the demise of established Cold War structures threatened to unleash worldwide pandemonium, the passing of socialism seemed to leave money-making and ethnic violence as the only competitors for the future

John Maynard Keynes by D. E Moggridge( Book )

36 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in 11 languages and held by 529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Maynard Keynes (1883-1946) is a central thinker of the twentieth century, not just an economic theorist and statesman, but in the borderland of economics, philosophy, politics, and culture. Keynes's doctrines continue to inspire strong feelings in admirers and detractors alike. This short, engaging study of his life and thought explores the many positive and negative stereotypes and also examines the quality of Keynes's mind, his cultural and social milieu, his ethical and practical philosophy, and his monetary thought. Recent scholarship has significantly altered the treatment and assessment of Keynes's contribution to twentieth-century economic thinking, and the current state of the debate initiated by the Keynesian revolution is discussed in a final chapter on its legacy

"John Maynard Keynes was one of the seminal thinkers of the twentieth century, a luminary whose groundbreaking ideas remain even today at the center of political and economic discussion. In this work of clarity and erudition, Robert Skidelsky offers a revised and abridged version of his award-winning three-volume biography of Keynes, which has long been acclaimed as the authoritative account of the great economist-statesman's life. In one definitive volume, Skidelsky examines in its entirely the intellectual and ideological journey that led an extraordinarily gifted young man to concern himself with the practical problems of an age overshadowed by war. John Maynard Keynes offers a sympathetic account of the life and influences of a passionate visionary."--Jacket

Who runs the economy? : the role of power in economics by Robert Skidelsky( Book )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the financial crisis of 2008 and the following Great Recession, there has been surprisingly little change in the systems of ideas, institutions and policies which preceded the crash and helped bring it about. 'Mainstream' economics carries on much as it did before. Despite much discussion of what went wrong, very little has substantially changed. Perhaps the answer has something to do with power; a subject on which economics is unusually quiet. Whilst economics may be able to discuss bargaining power and market power, it fails to explore the reciprocal connections between economic ideas and politics: the political power of economic ideas on the one side, and the influence of power structures on economic thought on the other. This book explores how the supposedly neutral discipline of economics does not simply describe human behaviour, but in fact shapes it
