What is Essential about Keynes Today?
Robert Skidelsky, pp. 7 -16
In this paper, a transcript of my address to the 2016 Keynes Conference in Turin, I unpick various elements of Keynesian revival in economics and explore how different schools of economists have disagreed on which aspects of Keynes’ thought are relevant to modern economic theory. Finally, I conclude with four thoughts on the relevance of Keynes for how one does economics.
