Keynes : a critical life by David Felix( )

10 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,028 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Only a person of Keynes's unique character could have achieved what he did. After teaching neoclassical economics for two decades, he developed an extraordinary theoryÑextraordinary in that it built upon the theoretical complex he intended to overthrow and extraordinary in that it provided the best guidance for defeating the Depression of the 1930s and managing an economy thereafter. This biography shows how Keynes's personality left its stamp on his ideas, the connections between his all-too-human quirks and his theorizing, between his dominating personality and his success as a policymaker

America rising : power and political economy in the first nation by David Felix( Book )

10 editions published between 2008 and 2017 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The United States became a great power in the last quarter of the nineteenth century and a superpower during World War II without quite knowing it. Few Americans fully appreciate the fact today. How many people know that in recent years we have had 250,000 troops in 700 bases around the world? Consider our recent history of military operations in the Caribbean, East Asia, the Far East, Middle East, Southeast Asia, Africa, and the Balkans. In America Rising, David Felix attempts to explain how and why America became a superpower by examining the political and economic factors that have driven its ascendence and their relationship throughout history. Felix begins with the dawn of America, showing how America amassed wealth and political power from the start through wars, assertions of economic might, and the creation of a cultural and philosophical base. The nation began with a political order, derived from our British origins, which enabled our pragmatic culture to take advantage of the vast wealth of a near-virgin continent. Political and economic freedom were paired, authority yielding to both freedoms. Our farmers and businessmen were dreamers, manufacturing realities out of those dreams. Felix's account then makes a point of neoclassical economics as an anvil on which to hammer out a sharper sense of the content of our existence."--Jacket
Biography of an idea : John Maynard Keynes and the general theory of employment, interest, and money by David Felix( Book )

14 editions published between 1994 and 2017 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The culmination of John Maynard Keynes's thought and lifework was The General Theory or Employment, Interest and Money. Here, placing it in the context of his era, David Felix examines the evolution of Keynes's theorizing. He boldly claims that The General Theory lacks logical and factual support as pure theory, but is an achievement of great statesmanship in political economy. Biography of an Idea is bound to be controversial due to the many cohorts of economists who have been trained in macroeconomics according to Keynes. It will be of interest and accessible to intellectually curious laymen and students, and important to economists, historians, and political scientists

Kennan and the Cold War : an unauthorized biography by David Felix( Book )

8 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

US diplomat George F. Kennan (1904-2005) devised a way to resist the Soviet Union's attempt to conquer the world for Communism with a policy of containment. It took genius to see a wartime ally as a dangerous adversary, and to convince the American leadership to act upon it. By 1950 Kennan began to reverse his thinking on the American policy, and he withdrew from government to start a new career as a public intellectual. He spent the rest of his life campaigning for a more peaceable policy through his eighteen books, and articles and talks
Industrialización sustitutiva de importaciones y exportación industrial en la Argentina by David Felix( Book )

4 editions published between 1965 and 1976 in Spanish and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The scope and method of political economy by John Neville Keynes( Book )

3 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The elder Keynes argues that almost every problem connected with the scope and method of political economy has given rise to conflict of opinion. The resulting controversies have sometimes been bitter. Those readers, who already have any acquaintance with the literature of economic method should be prepared to find that several of the chapters are controversial in character. At the same time, Keynes avoids the tone of a partisan and represents both sides of the argument without prejudice. While making no attempt to bring about a complete reconciliation between opposing views, Keynes shows the nature of the opposition between them has sometimes been misunderstood, and its extent consequently exaggerated. Since the scope and method of a science can never be satisfactorily discussed at the commencement of its study, some knowledge of political economy in its general outlines is assumed. The nature of the topics discussed in this classic is indicated in the introductory chapter. The abstract discussion of methods is one to which students of economics must necessarily give attention in the course of their reading, and its indirect bearing on the solution of practical economic questions is very close in contemporary importance in today's society."--Provided by publisher

The economic consequences of the peace by John Maynard Keynes( )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2017 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Maynard Keynes, then a rising young economist, participated in the Paris Peace Conference in 1919 as chief representative of the British Treasury and advisor to Prime Minister David Lloyd George. He resigned after desperately trying and failing to reduce the huge demands for reparations being made on Germany. The Economic Consequences of the Peace is Keynes' brilliant and prophetic analysis of the effects that the peace treaty would have both on Germany and, even more fatefully, the world. A popular lecturer of economics at Cambridge University and editor of the Economic Journal, Keynes made The Economic Consequences of the Peace a major step in his career. It was translated into a dozen languages and sold 100,000 copies in six months. Taken seriously even by those who were opposed to his claims, the book helped lift economics to a new, higher level of recognition and acceptance. This volume, with its insightful portraits of Lloyd George, Georges Clemenceau, and Woodrow Wilson, remains one of the great works of political economy of our time. In a penetrating introduction written for this new edition, David Felix explores Keynes' reasons for writing the book, analyzes the author's arguments, and paints an historical backdrop of the period during which it was written."--Provided by publisher
