Abstract

The years 2009-2011 collectively mark nine decades since Keynes's Economic Consequences of the Peace (1919), "four score and seven years" since the appearance of his Tract (1923), 80 years since the Treatise (1930) and the "platinum anniversary" of the publication of his General Theory (1936), tomes which attracted attention and debate then, with the General Theory still generating much interest and controversy amongst economists and the public today; that is in a period of emergence from what has been, in retrospect, perhaps the most serious economic shock - financial, nominal and real - since the depression years and their immediate aftermath, 1929-1939.
