Keynes's Vision is a readable and thought-provoking essay about the ideas of one of the most influential statesmen of the twentieth century. It shows how John Maynard Keynes formulated a new system of political economy, as different and inspiring as the political economies of Adam Smith or Karl Marx. Keynes based politics and economics on traditional Greek concepts, but his unique system was misunderstood. Athol Fitzgibbons goes back to Keynes's early philosophical works, which have remained neglected or unpublished, and reveals the vision behind them. By tracing it through the Collected Writings, he draws out an unsuspected and evocative theme running through all Keynes's major works. This scholarly study will revise previous ideas about Keynes. It explains in clear language how Keynes understood political and economic matters of significance, and gives a fresh insight into his approach to economic policy.
