I want to argue today that Keynes is not dead. The impetus for giving this talk arises from a number of events. The first one was the death of Keynes’ favourite pupil Richard Kahn in 1989. (A special issue of the Cambridge Journal of Economics is being prepared as a memorial to Richard and for that I have written a paper called ‘Kahn and Keynes and the Making of The General Theory’ (Cambridge Journal of Economics, vol. )) Secondly, a very fine book by a Brazilian economist came out in the late 1980s: Edward Amadeo’s Keynes’s Principle of Effective Demand (1989, Aldershot, Edward Elgar).

Secondly, a very fine book by a Brazilian economist came out in the late 1980s: Edward Amadeo’s Keynes’s Principle of Effective Demand (1989, Aldershot, Edward Elgar). I think it is the best analytical account of the transition in Keynes’s thought from the Treatise on Money to The General Theory. I think the best historical account is Peter Clarke’s marvellous book on The Keynesian Revolution in the Making, 1924–1936 (1988, Oxford, Oxford University Press). There, he uses the skills of the historian, goes to the archives and shows what an extraordinary quick thinker Keynes was because he would appear before the Macmillan Committee during the day and then rush back and revise the proofs of the Treatise on Money to take into account the latest arguments raised before the Committee or ideas he had during the day.
