New MR book club – Keynes’s *General Theory*

Greg Mankiw wrote:

If you were going to turn to only one economist to understand the
problems facing the economy, there is little doubt that the economist
would be John Maynard Keynes. Although Keynes died more than a
half-century ago, his diagnosis of recessions and depressions remains
the foundation of modern macroeconomics. His insights go a long way
toward explaining the challenges we now confront.

I will go through the book, chapter by chapter, with an eye toward a deeper understanding of what Keynes wrote and why it is, as Greg says, so important.  I’m not yet sure what kind of pace I can maintain but order your copy here, nowThe Kindle version is only $3.96.  We’ll do chapters 1 and 2 by next Monday, eight days from now.
