Item Description: London, Macmillan, 1936. 8vo. Original cloth, original dust jacket. An outstanding copy; two small closed tears in the jacket, otherwise in near mint condition. XII,430,(1) pp. First edition of one of the most important books in the history of economics. Keynes' book is often compared to Smith's 'Wealth of Nations' and Marx's 'Kapital'. It forms the foundation of of Keynesian economics, the most influential economic system of the twentieth-century. "The world-wide slump after 1929 prompted Keynes to attempt an explanation of, and new methods for controlling, the vagaries of the trade-cycle. . (In his General Theory of Employment), he subjected the definitions and theories of the classical school of economists to a penetrating scrutiny and found them seriously inadequate and inaccurate. By-passing what he termed the 'underworlds' of Marx, Gesell and Major Douglas, he propounded a hardly less unorthodox programme for national and international official monetary policies. . Keynes was to dominate the international conference at Bretton Woods, out of which came the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank; and his influence during the ensuing decades, even on his theoretical opponents, has been such that a highly placed American official recently remarked that 'we are all Keynesians today'". (Printing and the Mind of Man, 423). Bookseller Inventory # 36428

This volume is generally regarded as the most influential social science treatise of the twentieth century. Octavo, original cloth. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with the lightest of toning.

Item Description: London: Macmillan, 1936. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. THE OUTSTANDING ECONOMIST OF HIS GENERATION. Original navy cloth, printed dust jacket. Jacket spine browned. Very good. FIRST EDITION of this classic of modern economics, "on which his fame as the outstanding economist of his generation must rest" (DNB). World–wide depression induced Keynes to re–examine classical approaches to economics. Urging the use of a national budget as a principal instrument of the planning of the national economy, Keynes placed responsibility for regulation of the economy squarely in the hands of the government. "John Maynard Keynes was one of the great intellectual innovators of the first half of our century, and certainly its greatest political economist" (New Palgrave). Printing and the Mind of Man 423.

Item Description: London Macmillan, 1936. Octavo, xii, 403pp., original blue cloth gilt, dust-wrapper, small tape stain to front free endpaper, spine of dust-wrapper darkened, light wear. A fine example of the first edition of Keynes' masterwork, scarce in dust-jacket. Written in the aftermath of the great depression, the General Theory is regarded as one of the most influential social science treatise of the century; it quickly and permanently changed the way the world looked at the economy and the role of government in society. This is the book "on which [Keynes'] fame as the outstanding economist of his generation must rest" (DNB). After the 1929 crash, Keynes analysed the classical school of economists, "and found them seriously inadequate and inaccurate. [.] A national budget, over and above its function of providing a national income, should be used as a major instrument in planning the national economy. The regulation of the trade-cycle [.] must be the responsibility of governments. Lost equilibrium in a national economy could and should be restored by official action and not abandoned to laisser faire. [The General Theory] threw the economists of the world into two violently opposed camps. Yet eight years later Keynes was to dominate the international conference at Bretton Woods, out of which came the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank; and his influence during the ensuing decades, even on his theoretical opponents, has been such that a highly placed American official recently remarked that 'we are all Keynesians today'" (PMM). About speculation especially, Keynes dismisses conventional wisdom, and the fundamentalist's dream, that the fund manager should base his investment decisions solely on the probably long-term yield of any investment: "He who attempts it must surely lead much more laborious days, and run greater risks than he who tries to guess better than the crowd, how the crowd will behave; and given equal intelligence, he may make more disastrous mistakes." Keynes was speaking from experience. During the Twenties and Thirties, he looked after several institutional funds -- highly leveraged, and highly speculative -- dealing in commodities, currencies, and equities. Like Livermore he was no stranger to loss, and during the 1929 crash his funds lost seventy-five per cent of their value. He managed to recoup, and, amazingly, six years later increased his fortune twenty-three times with a series of judicious investments. As Barton Biggs recently wrote: "there are many brilliant and bizarre characters in today's hedge fund world, but Keynes surpasses them all. Hedgehogs would have liked and appreciated him." PMM 423.

Item Description: Hogarth Press, London, 1936. First Edition. Keynes, John Maynard. THE GENERAL THEORY OF EMPLOYMENT, INTEREST AND MONEY. Signed. London: Macmillan and Co., 1936. First Edition. 8vo. 403 pp. Gilt-stamped dark blue green cloth, gilt titles and rules to the spine. A near fine copy in a very good grey printed dustwrapper with 5/- Net to the front flap. Signature of E. B. Hodgson on ffe. with remnants of old tape marks where a neat cut Keynes signature was held in place & is now tipped there. Printing And The Mind Of Man 423. "Critical reaction to his great book was inconclusive. To young economists it was a 'Manifesto of Reason and Cheerfulness'. To most of their elders it was little more than an inflationist tract, 'the dying voice of the bourgeois crying in the wilderness for the profits it dare not fight for', as Joseph Schumpeter put it. Most of Keynes's Cambridge colleagues sat on the fence, shaken but sceptical". Skidelsky, Robert. John Maynard Keynes. Fighting For Britain. 1937-1946. Keynes's masterwork, written in the aftermath of the great depression of 1929 is generally considered the most influential global social science treatise of the century. The General Theory quickly & permanently changed the way the world looked at the economy & the role of government in society. A very nice copy. Tucked into the back is a copy of the June-July ECONOMIC NEWS, Vol 20 Nos. 6 and 7. featuring John Maynard Keynes. 10 printed pages on stapled cream stock, folded at the middle. Signed by Author.

Item Description: London Macmillan and Co, 1936. 8vo., xii + 403 + (1)pp., in the original publisher's cloth lettered gilt. A fine, bright, copy without blemish, but without a dustwrapper. First edition: first issue. One of the iconic books in the development of economic thought by one of the outstanding economists of his generation. 'The composition of this book', Keynes declares, 'has been for the author a long struggle of escape, and so must the reading of it be for most readers if the author's assault upon them is to be successful, - a struggle of escape from habitual modes of thought and expression. The ideas which are here expressed so laboriously are extremely simple and should be obvious. The difficulty lies, not in the new ideas, but in escaping from the old ones, which ramify, for those brought up as most of us have been, into every corner of our minds.' [Preface,> p. viii].

Item Description: London, Macmillan, 1936., 1936. XII, 403 S., goldgeprägter O.-Leinwand-Band (Einband minimal berieben). Zweiter Druck, erschienen einen Monat nach der Erstausgabe. Arbeitsexemplar des Wirtschaftswissenschaftlers Carl Föhl und daher für die Dogmengeschichte der sogenannten deutschen Vorkeynesianer äußerst aufschlußreiches Dokument! Enthält zahlreiche Unterstreichungen, Anstreichungen und Marginalien in Bleistift, sowie auf den letzten weißen Seiten und im Innendeckel handschriftliche Notizen; u.a. eine ausführliche Liste mit "Übereinstimmungen". Föhl hatte nach seinem Maschinenbaustudium in Karlsruhe zunächst als Ingenieur bei der AEG in Berlin gearbeitet, war dann Berechnungsingenieur in Stockholm, von 1929 bis 1931 Geschäftsführer der Ruths G.m.b.H. in Berlin und von 1931 bis 1935 Chefingenieur der Ruths-International in New-York. 1930 hatte er an der TU in Berlin zum Dr.Ing. promoviert. 1935 übernahm Föhl die Geschäftsführung des 'Vereins zur Beförderung des Gewerbefleißes von 1821'. "Carl Föhl's Buch 'Geldschöpfung und Wirtschaftskreislauf' verdankt der 'General Theory' von Keynes überhaupt nichts, weil, wie der Autor im Vorwort feststellt, das Manuskript bereits im Dezember 1935 fertiggestellt war, so daß der Autor nurmehr gelegentliche Hinweise auf die 'General Theory' einfügen konnte. Um so überraschender sind mehrere Fälle der Parallelität zwischen seinen und den Keynesschen Lehrsätzen, obwohl für den anglo-amerikanischen Leser das volle Maß der Uebereinstimmung auf den ersten Blick nicht ersichtlich sein wird. Dies ist auf zwei Tatsachen zurückzuführen: Dr. Föhl verwandte einen anderen Begriffsapparat und gelangte zu seinen Schlußfolgerungen mit Hilfe von Methoden, die geeignet sind, jene Uebereinstimmung zu verschleiern; und außerdem schrieb er in einer anderen Umgebung, . Aber gerade deshalb wäre das Studium dieses Buches für die amerikanischen Oekonomen außerordentlich lehrreich: gerade infolge seiner nicht-Keynesianischen Methode offenbart es eine (objektive) Verwandschaft der Lehrmeinungen und rückt verschiedene Keynes'sche Probleme, besonders das der Gleichgewichts-Unterbeschäftigung, in ein neues Licht." (Schumpeter, Geschichte der ökonomischen Analyse, S. 1403 und 1427). Bookseller Inventory # 6488

Item Description: London, Macmillian and Co., 1909 Lex8vo. Entire volume XIX of The Economical Journal present. Bound in a black contemporary full cloth with gilt title-label to spine. Ex-library copy with library-code pasted on to top of front board and library book-plate to pasted down front free end-paper (Pomona College Library). A bit worn at capitals and cloth at spine somewhat "bumpy" Internally clean and fresh. Pp. 51-67. [Entire volume: ix, (3), 658, (2) pp.]. First printing of John Maynard Keynes' first published article on economics, dealing with the effect of a recent global economic downturn on India. The present article anticipates many of the theories presented in his 'The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money', one of the most important books in the history of economics."Keynes's first article, 'Recent Economic Events in India', was an attempt to link the high Indian price level of 1907, India's unfavorable balance of trade in 1908 and the effect of the resulting support of the Indian exchange rate on the London money market with the behavior of the evolving currency system [.]. The article demonstrated his grasp of institutional detail and his ability to marshal the appropriate descriptive economic statistics, while keeping his eye firmly on the underlying processes at work. His attempts to estimate the various components of India's balance of payments, particularly foreign investment in India, also led him into other discussions."(Moggridge, Maynard Keynes: an economist's biography, 1995, pp. 202-203). John Maynard Keynes is probably the most influential 20th century economist. Keynsianism is based on the idea that descisions in the private sector sometimes lead to inefficient macroeconomic outcomes and therefore advocate an active economic policy by the public sector including monetary policy actions by the central bank, which is also reflected in this early paper by the then merely 26 year old Keynes."Keynes was to dominate the international conference at Bretton Woods, out of which came the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank; and his influence during the ensuing decades, even on his theoretical opponents, has been such that a highly placed American official recently remarked that 'we are all Keynesians today'".

XI, 344 pp., cloth binding.Translated by Fritz Waeger. John Maynard Keynes (1883 - 1946 ) was a British economist whose ideas have been a central influence on modern macroeconomics, both in theory and practice. He advocated interventionist government policy, by which governments would use fiscal and monetary measures to mitigate the adverse effects of business cycles, economic recessions, and depressions. His ideas are the basis for the school of thought known as Keynesian economics, and its various offshoots. OCLC: 215433581 The general theory of employment, interest and money.

"The world-wide slump after 1929 prompted Keynes to attempt an explanation of, and new methods for controlling, the vagaries of the trade-cycle. First in A Treatise on Money, 1930, and later in his General Theory, he subjected the definitions and theories of the classical school of economics to a penetrating scrutiny and found them seriously inadequate and inaccurate".
