by KEYNES, John Maynard [1883-1946]

Condition: See description

London: Macmillan And Co., Limited, 1936. First Edition, Canadian Issue, of the most influential economic work of the twentieth century. This is a variant with London rather than Toronto imprint on the title-page. The green cloth binding is found only on copies of the Canadian issue. “Few would dispute today the main theses of this epoch-making work, or could imagine the furore of disagreement aroused by its first appearance. That national budgets are major instruments in a planned economy, that financial booms and slumps are controllable by governments rather than by laissez-faire is now a universally officially accepted doctrine. Roosevelt’s ‘New Deal’ was the first important application of Keynsian doctrines.” (PMM Exhib. Cat.) cfPrinting and the Mind of Man 423. 8vo. xii, 403. original cloth (a few very minor marks on binding)

The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money was written by the English economist John Maynard Keynes. The book, generally considered to be his magnum opus, is largely credited with creating the terminology and shape of modern macroeconomics.
