In responding to the financial crash of 2008, both the Bush Administration and the Obama Administration have relied on prescriptions developed by John Maynard Keynes, the most important economist since Marx. But should we be relying on Keynes? What did Keynes actually say? Did he make his case? Hunter Lewis concludes that he did not. If Keynes was wrong then so are the economic policies of virtually all world governments today.

Book News
Investment banker Lewis presents a critique of the macroeconomic ideas of John Maynard Keynes that is geared towards a general audience. He begins with a presentation of the main ideas of Keynes, frequently including extensive quotations of Keynes himself, followed by discussion and rebuttal. He then critiques the methods of persuasion utilized by Keynes and explores what he argues are some of the dangerous paradoxes of Keynesian economics. Much of his critique draws from the writings of Friedrich Hayek, Henry Hazlitt, and other members of the Austrian School. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

When the world financial system failed in 2008, world governments used a playbook devised by famed British economist John Maynard Keynes.
But should we be relying so completely on Keynes? What if he is wrong? If Keynes is wrong, then so are the economic policies of Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and virtually all world governments today. Where Keynes Went Wrong addresses these critical questions in a lively, stimulating, and transparently clear style.
"Just what the world needs, and just in time. Keynes is demolished and his quack system refuted. But this wonderful book does more. It restores clear thinking and common sense to their rightful places in the economic policy debate. Three cheers for Hunter Lewis!" - James Grant, Editor of Grant’s Interest Rate Observer

the problem of the foreign bank remains. it's no wonder both keynes and von mises were subsidized by the same money power that now dominates the world. in psychology that is called a double-bind. funny as heck but the joke is on us. too bad we don't get it.
