Download PDF eBook Keynes Hayek: The Clash that Defined Modern Economics,
“I defy anyone―Keynesian, Hayekian, or uncommitted―to learn [Wapshott’s] work and never study one thing new.”―John Cassidy, The New Yorker
Because the inventory market crash of 1929 plunged the world into turmoil, two males emerged with competing claims on how one can restore steadiness to economies gone awry. John Maynard Keynes, the mercurial Cambridge economist, believed that authorities had an obligation to spend when others wouldn’t. He met his reverse in a little-known Austrian economics professor, Freidrich Hayek, who thought-about makes an attempt to intervene each pointless and doubtlessly harmful. The battle traces thus drawn, Keynesian economics would dominate for many years and coincide with an period of unprecedented prosperity, however conservative economists and political leaders would ultimately embrace and execute Hayek’s opposite imaginative and prescient.
From their first face-to-face encounter to the heated arguments between their ardent disciples, Nicholas Wapshott right here reveals the modern relevance of Keynes and Hayek, as present-day arguments over the virtues of the free market and authorities intervention rage with the identical ferocity as they did within the 1930s.W W Norton Firm
