Classing Up The General Theory


Here is an image of the back cover of the Romanian edition of Keynes's General Theory published in 2009. If you look close enough you will see that the blurbs feature quotations from Murray Rothbard, Ludwig von Mises, and Paul Krugman, in that order starting from the top. Rothbard's and Mises's statements do not refer directly to Keynes or the General Theory, and it is hard to understand why they would be there except to add cachet to the book. It's just another example of the ever-expanding and world-embracing influence of the two greatest economists of the twentieth century.

HT to Carmen Dorobat.
