The Keynesian Revolution and Its Economic Consequences: Selected Essays by Peter Clarke
'. . . it is useful to have Clarke's extensive writings on the Keynesian revolution collected together. This volume can be commended to all who are interested in economic thought or policy.'
- G.C. Peden, The Economic History Review
'I should state from the outset how much I enjoyed the book and how stimulating I found it. Where I found Clarke's work particularly valuable was in his discussion of the policy consequences of Keynes. These comprise the last three essays in particular and make fascinating reading. Peter Clarke's Keynesian Revolution and its Economic Consequences is a work of the highest scholarship. It is a study of the twentieth century's most dramatic change in economic theory in the hands of not only a first rate historian but also of a first rate English stylist. The essays are a pleasure to read and are filled with insight. The great value of Clarke's work is in bringing to the fore the surrounding historical context and institutional backdrop for events which were to influence the development of economic theory so dramatically.'
- History of Economics Review
The Keynesian Revolution and its Economic Consequences is a study of John Maynard Keynes as a publicist, expert and theorist and of the economic doctrines associated with his name. It examines the Keynesian revolution in economic theory and policy and shows how Keynesianism as a school of thought departed from the substance of Keynes's own thinking and policy prescription.
