A Guide to Keynes. By ALVIN HANSEN.(New York: McGraw-Hill. Pp. xiv, $) Hansen wrote this book, as he says, "to assist, and induce the student to read" Keynes' General Theory. The intention is laudable, and the performance seems to be very satisfactory.   John Maynard Keynes (–) is widely considered to have been the most influential economist of the 20th key books include The Economic Consequences of the Peace (); A Treatise on Probability (); A Tract on Monetary Reform (); A Treatise on Money (); and his magnum opus, the General Theory of Employment, Brand: Penguin Publishing Group.

The analysis points to the key role played by the monetary.

Also very useful is Rallo's guide for readers of TGT that makes reading and spotting Keynes’s main mistakes, chapter by chapter, easy and efficient. As a plus, at the end of the book, Rallo also provides a critique of the IS-LM model developed by John Hicks and Franco Modigliani which formalized Keynes's theory and is still taught at. That book seems really important but impenetrable for the average reader. I would love it if someone did a study guide for it, maybe , or did a live blog of it, ie taking hayek seriously, but it would probably be a huge effort. (what ever happened to Tyler Cowens live blog of Keynes’ General Theory?).

Alvin Hansen’s Guide to Keynes () was the text which introduced Keynes to a generation of students. Seymour Harris wrote in his introduction: As the most prominent Keynesian in the United States, Hansen has interpreted Keynesian economics for American students and laymen; and he has greatly enriched it as well.

Hansen's popular Guide to Keynes (), with its paragraph-by-paragraph dissection of the General Theory, was often assigned to graduate students to be read along with the classic text.

Hansen served as a consultant to, and shaped the form of, the current Social Security system. John Maynard Keynes, 1st Baron Keynes CB FBA (/ k eɪ n z / KAYNZ; 5 June – 21 April ), was a British economist, whose ideas fundamentally changed the theory and practice of macroeconomics and the economic policies of governments.

Originally trained in mathematics, he built on and greatly refined earlier work on the causes of business cycles, and was one of the Alma mater: Eton College, University of Cambridge. Hence the inevitable pairing, in the other half of his book, of Hayek with John Maynard Keynes, on the grounds that this was "the clash that defined modern economics".

Again, the author has done. Keynes knew what he was on to when he wrote The General Theory. In a letter to playwright and socialist George Bernard Shaw, he wrote: “I believe myself to be writing a book on economic theory Author: Danuta Kean.

As others already mentioned, Keynes’ own General Theory is a good start for getting your head around Keynes’ economic thought. Also already mentioned, that’s probably not the best place to start.

I am inclined to read historical works before anyth. Hazlitt's book is still the best overall critique of Keynes ever written. It needs to find a new audience. So, I have made an offer to Lew Rockwell. I will donate $5, to the Mises Institute to pay some bright young economist to write a study guide for the book, one along the lines of Robert Murphy's study guide to Rothbard's Man, Economy.

His book on Keynes is a straight, honest, succinct statement of what Keynes was about and it has the great merit of putting uncertainty at the centre of Keynesian theory.

Keynesian economics sees national governments as having a stabilizing role in the economy, complementing the private sector's freedom to conduct business.
