Dissent on Keynes: A Critical Appraisal of Keynesian Economics

Mark Skousen

Contrary to occasional pronouncements that “Keynes is dead,” government interventionism continues to be a growing threat throughout the world economy. Keynesianism and its many facets represent the most sophisticated defense of the Welfare State ever imagined. It will not die easily. In the long run Keynes may be dead, but in the short run he lives on in the halls of government, the classrooms of academia, and the boardrooms of big business. The purpose of this provocative collection of papers is to begin the expulsion, once and for all, of John Maynard Keynes from these institutions.

The Panic of 1819, Murray Rothbard’s incisive and extremely well-styled Columbia University dissertation, provides a fascinating history of the era and an answer to the question of when and how the boom died.
