The ideas of John Maynard Keynes inspired Roosevelt's New Deal and helped to rebuild world economics after the Second World War. Then, in the 1980s, they fell from favour, ousted by neoliberalism, but since the crash of 2008, Keynes's sceptical insights into market capitalism have been making a comeback. This elegant, concise summary explains the theories, personality and charisma of this massively influential economist, and explores his continued relevance in today's crisis-stricken world.
