New Book: Who’s Afraid of John Maynard Keynes? Challenging Economic Governance in an Age of Growing Inequality


By Paul Davidson. From Palgrave:

Davidson explains the importance of the market economy, and unveils how and why global financial crises occur when the liquidity of financial assets traded in the market, suddenly collapse.

70 years after Keynes’ death, in another era of financial crisis and economic slump, Keynes’ ideas have made a comeback within economic circles. Yet these ideas are not represented in contemporary government policy decisions. This book explains why Keynes’ ideas need to be used by political parties in order to restore global prosperity and close the gap between income and wealth inequality.

This book will is essential reading for researchers, practitioners, students and the wider public interested in an economic understanding of today’s global economic problems.
