    Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. This book was originally published by Macmillan in 1936. It was voted the top Academic Book that Shaped Modern Britain by Academic Book Week (UK) in 2017, and in 2011 was placed on Time Magazine's top 100 non-fiction books written in English since 1923. Reissued with a fresh Introduction by the Nobel-prize winner Paul Krugman and a new Afterword by Keynes' biographer Robert Skidelsky, this important work is made available to a new generation. The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money transformed economics and changed the face of modern macroeconomics. Keynes' argument is based on the idea that the level of employment is not determined by the price of labour, but by the spending of money. It gave way to an entirely new approach where employment, inflation and the market economy are concerned. Highly provocative at its time of publication, this book and Keynes' theories continue to remain the subject of much support and praise, criticism and debate. Economists at any stage in their career will enjoy revisiting this treatise and observing the relevance of Keynes' work in today's contemporary climate. It was voted the top Academic Book that Shaped Modern Britain by Academic Book Week (UK) in 2017, and in 2011 was placed on Time Magazine's top 100 non-fiction books written in English since 1923.

    Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket, as Issued. First Edition. Second impression of the true first edition, published in 1940. There were two issues of this book - the first was in blue-green paper covered boards, and this issue, in pale orange paper covered boards, which incorporated some corrections to the text, and is less common than the earlier uncorrected version. With a four page Preface by J. M. Keynes, King's College, Cambridge, February, 1940. ***Very good in pale orange paper covered printed boards with black titles and borders to spine and front boards. Edges of boards slightly rubbed and marked. Spine slightly faded but complete without any tears to the thin paper covering. No bumps. Corners sharp. No creases. Boards just slightly marked from handling. Internally also very good, with a neat contemporary ownership name 'J. Carruthers' in pale fountain-pen ink to the top of the front pastedown. There are also a very few neat annotations in the text but these are minimal and extremely faint [please see scans] No foxing. Pages clean. Spine tight. No dustwrapper was issued as this was a cheap war economy production. ***190mm x 125mm. 88 pages including Appendices at the rear. ***Contents: Preface; Ch. I. The Character of the Problem; II. The Character of the Solution; III. Our Output Capacity and the National Income; IV. Can the Rich Pay for the War?; V. A Plan for Deferred Pay, Family Allowances and a Cheap Ration; VI. Details; VII. The Release of Deferred Pay and a Capital Levy; VIII. Rationing, Price Control and Wage Control; IX. Voluntary Saving and the Mechanism of Inflation; X. The System Adopted in France. ***Appendices: I. The National Income; The extent of our Resources Abroad; III. The Cost of Family Allowances; IV. The Formula for Deferred Pay. Acknowledgments. ***'How to Pay for the War: A Radical Plan for the Chancellor of the Exchequer is an application of Keynesian thinking and principles to a practical economic problem, and a relatively late text [Keynes died in 1946]. Keynes describes a macroeconomic strategy of how Britain, a nation with a population at the time of 40 million people, could conduct a long war against Germany, a nation of 80 million. At the time "How to Pay for the War" was written, neither the United States nor the Soviet Union were at war with either Germany or Japan. As a result, the first step for Britain to effectively conduct a war against Germany was to mobilize all its resources for production. Keynes maintained, however, that the resources of Britain, even at full employment, would not suffice to conduct a war against Germany. Internally, Britain would need to increase production while reducing consumption and diverting resources to the war effort. Externally, Britain would have to be able to count on more resources than internally available, running as large a deficit as its allies were willing to allow. The book is an exercise in Keynesian macroeconomics and is a prime example of Keynesian analysis and technique, by John Maynard Keynes himself.' ***A really nice copy of this second corrected issue of the true first edition of John Maynard Keynes' "How to Pay for the War". The uncorrected version in blue-green boards was published a few months earlier. Both issues are hard to find in such nice, collectable condition. A fragile wartime production. Keynes's most successful essay in persuasion, the application of his General Theory to wartime economy. ***Of interest to collectors of John Maynard Keynes, and books on the economics of the Second World War. ***For all our books, postage is charged at cost, allowing for packaging: any shipping rates indicated on ABE are an average only: we will reduce the P & P charge where appropriate - please contact us for postal rates for heavier books and sets etc.

    First American Edition, Publisher's Advance Review Copy with their printed slip identifying it as such tipped to the front flap of the jacket with release date and price in manuscript. 8vo, publisher's original burgundy cloth lettered on the spine in gilt, with a great deal of the dustjacket still retained, lacking only the spine panel and rear turnover flap. xiii, 376pp. The book is very near to fine, the cloth fresh and well preserved with just a hint of bumping to the tips, the text is also fresh and clean, uncommonly bright for Depression era paper, the jacket has wear as described. THE AUTHOR'S FIRST COLLECTION OF ESSAYS, what he calls "the croakings of a Cassandra who could never influence the course of events in time." Here one of the most famous and influential economists of the modern era provides his prophecies arranged into five categories; The Treaty of Peace, Inflation and Deflation, The Return to the Gold Standard, Politics, and the Future. Unlike the author's more purely economic texts, his intended audience of 'Essays in Persuasion' was the general public. In light of future history many of the them are remarkably prophetic. Throughout them we also see the groundwork being laid for his primary work on economics, "The General Theory of Employment Interest and Money.".

    Early printing of the economist's masterpiece. Octavo, original cloth. Very good in a very good dust jacket, from the library of The New School with their stamps, owner name to the front free endpaper. The General Theory ranks with Smith s Wealth of Nations as an intellectual event and with Malthus Essay on Population as a guide for public policy. The London Review of Books has grouped The General Theory "among the glories of modern publishing, edited with exemplary authority and lack of fuss." Many innovations of The General Theory remain central to modern macroeconomics. It was placed on Time's 2001 top one-hundred non-fiction books written in English since 1923 and The Times Literary Supplement 100 greatest books of the twentieth century.

    1936, 1st Edition, Canadian Issue. (Cloth) Very good plus, no dust jacket. xii, 403pp, [1]. 8vo. In original forest green smooth-cloth boards; lettering in gold to spine. Boards with shelfwear; slight chipping at head and heel of spine; gold lettering rubbed; small dent at head of top cover towards centre. Textblock remarkably bright and clean. NOTE: Macmillan's initial printing history of this edition can be difficult to determine and, as such, confusion often arises as to the proper first edition attribution. This copy is a 1st Canadian edition, printed on British sheets, pre-dating the First American edition, and NOT a true 1st/1st as some presume. The cloth binding is more towards the olive hue and is smooth, and the lettering on the spine differs from the 1st British edition. The boards also lack any decorative ruling. Publisher's device opposite the title page, with both MacMillan and Co., Limited and the MacMillan Company of Canada, Limited listed. Title page identical to 1st British Edition; copyright page reads simply, "Copyright / Printed in Great Britain / by R. & R. Clark, Limited, Edinburgh". Erratum printed at foot p.403.

    2 volumes. First American edition. Ex Libris of F. E. Hyde, Harvard Graduate School of Business. With tables. 8vo, publisher's original burgundy cloth, the spines lettered in gilt. xvii, 363; viii, 424 pp. Internally a fine set, clean and solid. The cloth is sturdy and sound but, as is always the case, the spines are faded and the gilt is mellowed down. FIRST EDITION OF AN IMPORTANT WORK BY ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL ECONOMISTS OF THE 20TH CENTURY. Published early during the great economic upheaval that was engulfing the entire world, A THEATISE ON MONEY argued that the best course of action during a depression was to promote spending and to discourage saving. Keynes did not believe that booms and busts happen solely because of extrinsic random variables such as "sunspots". Instead, he believed that economic events emerge when there are discrepancies between savings and investments. According to Keynes, a true measure of a nation's prosperity is not anything of physical value such as gold or silver, but by national income. To him, the most important characteristic of national income is consumption. The work is separated into two parts; THE PURE THEORY OF MONEY and THE APPLIED THEORY OF MONEY. In each Keynes lays groundwork which he would address further in THE GENERAL THEORY OF EMPLOYMENT, INTEREST AND MONEY, his 1936 publication considered by many to be one of the most important economic works of the 20th century.

  • Seller image for Recent Economic Events in India. [From The Economic Journal. The Journal of The Royal Economic Society. Edited by Edgeworth. Volume XIX]. - [JOHN MAYNARD KEYNES' FIRST ECONOMIC PUBLICATION] for sale by Lynge & Søn ILAB-ABF

    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'". (Printing and the Mind of Man, 423).

    XII, 403 S., goldgeprägter O.-Leinwand-Band (Einband minimal berieben). Zweiter Druck, erschienen einen Monat nach der Erstausgabe. Arbeitsexemplar des Ökonomen Carl Föhl und daher für die Dogmengeschichte der sogenannten deutschen Vor-Keynesianer 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).

    First US edition, using British sheets, of perhaps the most significant economics book of the 20th century. The General Theory was written in the aftermath of the Great Depression, when the old economic order was widely seen to have failed. Keynes argued that government must intervene in the economy, directing wages, investment, and demand, in order to achieve full employment and end the boom and bust cycle. In so doing, a middle way was found between the laissez-faire policy of Classical Economics, as founded by Adam Smith in the 18th century, and the complete state control of socialist governments, derived from Marx's theories of the 19th century. Keynes's system of controlled capitalism defined much of the 20th century, as it was embraced by the political left and right alike across Western Europe and the United States. Keynes's theories became the near-undisputed economic orthodoxy of the decades following the war, until the counter-attack of the monetarist and neoliberal schools undermined his hegemony. Moggridge A 10.1(b); Printing and the Mind of Man 423. Octavo. Original cloth with dust jacket. Ownership inscription of professor emeritus of accounting and economics Edward Peragallo, dated 1937, with his pencil underlining and marginalia to some chapters. Jacket rubbed along joints with some chipping to spine ends and head of rear panel, offset to one opening from a newspaper clipping; a very good copy.

    XI, 344 S. Brauner Original-Leinenband mit rot- und goldgeprägter Typographie sowie mit dem Original-Schutzumschlag. Die Grundlage aller modernen Wirtschaftspolitik. Prachtexemplar der ersten deutschen Ausgabe von The General Theory of Employment Interest and Money", im selben Jahr wie die englische Originalausgabe erschienen (1936) mit dem bemerkenswerten Vorwort von Keynes zu dieser ersten deutschen Ausgabe (datiert: 7. September 1936) sowie mit einem Vokabularium" (= Übersetzung ökonomischer Fachausdrücke) von Fritz Waeger. - Hauptwerk des bedeutendsten Wirtschaftswissenschaftlers unseres Jahrhunderts" (J. P. Hoffmann), ein Buch, das die Welt veränderte (PMM). Kein anderer Nationalökonom hat die heute in den westlichen Industrieländern praktizierten wirtschaftspolitischen Vorstellungen so sehr beeinflusst wie der Brite. Sein vorliegendes Werk erschütterte die seit Adam Smith vorherrschende Klassische Nationalökonomie. Es veränderte die gesamte volkswirtschaftliche Lehre. Keynes verwarf die Vorstellung der Klassiker, die freie Wirtschaft gehorche einer natürlichen Ordnung" ( Selbstheiligungskräfte des Marktes"), diese unsichtbare Hand" werde zu einer Harmonie und einem Gleichgewicht der Wirtschaft führen, und staatliche Eingriffe seien deshalb unnötig. - Der geniale englische Nationalökonom, der seine Lehre unter dem Eindruck der Weltwirtschaft konstruierte, forderte permanente wirtschaftspolitische Maßnahmen des Staates, um für Vollbeschäftigung zu sorgen. Die Grundlage dieser zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts revolutionären Ansicht war sein Nachweis, dass allgemeine Unterbeschäftigung auch bei gesamtwirtschaftlichem Gleichgewicht möglich ist. Diese Keynessche Theorie initiierte die moderne Finanzwissenschaft, die Konzeption der antizyklischen Wirtschaftspolitik, die moderne Wachstums- und Geldtheorie. Die Lehre des Cambridge-Gelehrten vom defecit spending", von der Ausgabenpolitik des Staates, die dafür sorgen sollte, dass eine entstandene Nachfragelücke" sofort wieder ausgeglichen wird, wurde vor allem in den USA unter Präsident John F. Kennedy und Lyndon B. Johnson in praktische Wirtschaftspolitik umgesetzt. Und auch in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland ist das Keynessche Globalsteuerungskonzept zur beherrschenden politischen Rezeptur geworden. Ein typischer Vertreter der Nachfragepolitik in Deutschland war Helmut Schmidt, der in seiner Zeit als Bundeskanzler mehrere Konjunkturprogramme zur Ankurbelung der schwächelnden Wirtschaft beschloss. In den 70er Jahren folgten viele europäische Regierungen der Nachfragepolitik. Das Urteil damals: Keynes hat den Kapitalismus mit dem Sozialismus versöhnt. - Der Keynesianismus wurde auch in Österreich insbesondere in der Ära Bruno Kreiskys als wirtschaftspolitische Leitlinie aufgegriffen. - En passant: Die englische Originalausgabe (London 1936, mit dem Orig.-Schutzumschlag) wird zurzeit in USA (NY) für $ 15.500 angeboten.

Occasional marginal notes in pencil. Some toning to edges and endpapers. Light wear to cloth; spine a little toned. Very good. Keynesian economics had a major impact on modern economic and political theory as well as on many governments' fiscal policies. Economists consider him one of the main founders of modern theoretical macroeconomics, and his popular expression "In the very long run, we are all dead" is still quoted. Keynes dominated the Bretton Woods conference out of which came the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. A highly placed American official recently remarked "We are all Keynsians today". Included within "Printing and the Mind of Man." From the library of an Economist and Historian based in Moscow during the mid twentieth century, author of 'Soviet Russia: An Introduction' (London: Hutchinson's University Library, 1954).

    First edition, first impression, of perhaps the most significant economics book of the 20th century. The General Theory was written in the aftermath of the Great Depression, when the old economic order was widely seen to have failed. Keynes argued that government must intervene in the economy, directing wages, investment, and demand, in order to achieve full employment and end the boom and bust cycle. In so doing, a middle way was found between the laissez-faire policy of Classical Economics, as founded by Adam Smith in the 18th century, and the complete state control of socialist governments, derived from Marx's theories of the 19th century. Keynes's system of controlled capitalism defined much of the 20th century, as it was embraced by the political left and right alike across Western Europe and the United States. Keynes's theories became the near-undisputed economic orthodoxy of the decades following the war, until the counter-attack of the monetarist and neoliberal schools undermined his hegemony. Moggridge A10.1; Printing and the Mind of Man 423. Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt, double rules to spine gilt and to covers in blind. Previous ownership signature, "G. B. Cusfield", in ink to front free endpaper, scattered pencilled marginalia. Binding tight and square, spine a touch faded, ends bruised and very lightly rubbed, some superficial marks to covers, contents bright. A very good copy.

    First edition, first printing. 8vo (220 x 145mm). [2], xii, 403, [1] pp. Original dark blue cloth, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, ruling continued to boards in blind. Bookseller's label to front pastedown, neat ownership inscriptions to front endpapers, contemporary newspaper review 'Mr Keynes on Interest' pasted to front fly leaves, otherwise an exceptionally fine copy, the cloth bright and unworn. London, Macmillan and Co., Limited. Keynes' greatest work and surely the most influential text of twentieth-century economics. Prompted by the world wide-slump following 1929, Keynes set upon 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 economists to a penetrating scrutiny and found seriously inadequate and inaccurate. . [Keynes'] programme for national and international official monetary policies [was based on the premise that the] 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 - that is to say the control of booms and slumps, the level of employment, the wage-scale and the flow of investment - must be the responsibility of governments. Lost equilibrium in a national economy could and should be restored by official action and abandoned to laisser faire? (PMM). The grip of Keynesian economics took hold almost immediately, informing aspects of Roosevelt's 'New Deal', the formation of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, as well as many of the policies of the post-war British Labour government. PMM, 423; Moggridge A10.

    8vo. XII, 403 pp. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt. First edition, first impression of what is generally considered the author's magnum opus, the book widely credited with creating the terminology and shape of modern macroeconomics. 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). "In 1936, although Roosevelt's 'New Deal' had utilized Keynesian prescriptions, 'The General Theory' ('on which', says the DNB, 'his fame as the outstanding economist of his generation must rest') 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 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). - Very light discoloration to the upper margin (ca 3 cm) of the front side. A fine copy. PMM 423. Moggridge A10.1. OCLC 167708. Books That Made Europe, p. 322.

    xii, 403pp. 8vo. First edition. First edition. xii, 403pp. 8vo. From the moment of publication to the current day, it's difficult to overstate the impact Keynes and his General Theory has had on the field of macroeconomics. "The world-wide slump after 1929 prompted Keynes to attempt an explanation of, and new methods for controlling, the vagaries of the trade cycle. [h]e subjected the definitions and theories of the classical school of economists to a penetrating scrutiny and found them seriously inadequate and inaccurate" (PMM). Controversial and divisive, it was received with enthusiasm by some and dismissed as a recipe for inflation by others. Put briefly, his analysis demonstrated that "[e]conomic policy should [ultimately] provide for the management of demand as a means of controlling the level of output and seek to ensure the fullest possible use of available resources" (ODNB). Keynes's General Theory provides an invaluable critique and thus is a sort of companion volume of the likes of Adam Smith. Indeed, this and The Wealth of Nations should be considered the two pillars of any serious collection of books on economics. PMM 423 Original blue-green publisher's cloth, spine gilt. The printed jacket is unclipped and in very good condition. There is a small tear at the top of the spine of the jacket.
