Zachary Carter’s THE PRICE OF PEACE, MONEY, DEMOCRACY AND THE LIFE OF JOHN MAYNARD KEYNES Is a timely biography of the world’s most famous economist. The Keynesian economic philosophy, so prominent in the 20th Century, strikes a relevant chord in today’s economic disarray. The book strikes at the heart of income inequality, an inegalitarian society, racism, and the damage to American by the economic control of nearly all wealth the top ten percent.
THE PRICE OF PEACE tracks the life of Keynes and the Keynes philosophy from the lead up to WWI through the Great Depression, the New Deal and WWII. Carter makes every word in every paragraph count. The book is for those seeking a serious look at Keynes’ brilliant insights and yes, not always popular solutions. Current events in America suggest that ” Keynesian Economics” has stood the test of time and may be more relevant that ever.” If you believe that systemic change is needed in the polemic and the economic structure in the United States, you will find support and comfort on these pages. i
“Keynesianism in this purest, simplest form is not so much a school of economic thought as a spirit of radical optimism, unjustified by most of human history and extremely difficult to conjure up, preciously when it is most needed.
Put the work into this book. You will be richly rewarded.
