About this Item: Macmillan and Co, London, 1936. 403pp. 8vo. First edition. First edition. 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 with the usual sunning to the spine. Seller Inventory # 101355

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.

About this Item: Macmillan and Co, 1936. FIRST EDITION, a few spots to prelims recurrent at head of Index, pp. [xii], 403, crown 8vo, original dark blue cloth, backstrip gilt lettered, corners of lower board with lightest of bumps, gentle knock at head of upper joint also, some foxing to edges heaviest at top with a few tiny spots to rear endpapers, faintest of dusting to cloth, dustjacket with backstrip a shade darkened and a few tiny nicks, short closed tear with attendant creasing at head of lower joint-fold, very good. Keynes's towering contribution to his field - the penultimate entry in 'Printing and the Mind of Man', where it is described as having 'subjected the definitions and theories of the classical school of economists to a penetrating scrutiny and found them seriously inadequate and inaccurate', the depth and scope of its influence has never really lost momentum. Scarce in the dustjacket, of which this is a nice, unrestored example. (PMM 423). Seller Inventory # 60321

About this Item: Macmillan & Co., Ltd., London, 1936. Hardcover. Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Dated 1936 to title page. There are no dates or printings listed to copyright page, which displays only the lonely word "Copyright" to center, while far below at the bottom of copyright page we find the lines "Printed in Great Britain by / R. & R. Clark, Limited, Edinburgh." And the same printer's credit appears here as final line of type on final page of this volume. Book will close its own text block and would thus usually grade "very good," but the blank FFE has been torn out of this copy and discarded, and a single "Withdrawn" stamp appears to top corner of next front blank, indicating a possible library history. But there are NO other library stampings or attachments; we'll thus grade the volume "good" in an original blue-on-gray dust jacket priced 5/- net" to bottom of front flap (NOT to spine). Jacket shows numerous small closed tears along top edge, and one of almost an inch to front panel (jacket had been allowed to "ride up" a bit, over time); call the jacket "very good" or "very-good-minus." Jacket spine moderately browned/darkened (not as noticeable in the hand as it appears in our scan); NO dampstain found anywhere. This is the tenth and latest of the author's titles listed opposite half-title page; all other titles show sales figures, while there are no sales figures listed for this title. Erratum to page 403. This is the true British first printing. John Maynard Keynes was the most celebrated economist of the Twentieth Century, his theories widely (if selectively) embraced by the ruling political and banking elites because they appear to encourage endless borrow-and-spend inflationary credit bubbles, which in turn allow the politicos to (in the doctrine attributed to Roosevelt henchman and Soviet agent Harry Hopkins) "tax and tax, spend and spend, elect and elect." xii pp. of preliminary matter followed by 403 pp. including index.

About this Item: London, Macmillan, 1936., 1936. 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 D.N.B., '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 discolouring of upper margin (ca 3 cm) of front side, a fine copy. PMM 423. Moggridge A10.1. OCLC 167708. Books That Made Europe, p. 322. Seller Inventory # 48049

His conclusion, namely that "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", permanently altered the terms of economic debate and considerations of the role of government in managing the economy (or not). Loosely inserted is a card from 1989 on the potential value of the book. Moggridge A10.1; Printing and the Mind of Man 423. Seller Inventory # 125338

About this Item: 1936. 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 (spine lightly faded, extremities a little rubbed). London, Macmillan and Co., Limited. First edition of 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.

About this Item: 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].

Signature of former owner on flyleaf, else Very Good, without dust jacket. 'Keynes's General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money (published February 1936) is probably the most influential and controversial economics book of the twentieth century. In it, Keynes claimed to have undermined the foundations of orthodox economics and to have developed a radically new way of thinking about unemployment. Some (often young) economists took up Keynesan ideas with missionary zeal, whilst others (often older) were very hostile. There was also intense controversy over what Keynes was actually saying' (Thoemmes Web site). 'John Maynard Keynes is doubtlessly one the most important figures in the entire history of economics. He revolutionized economics with his classic book, The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money (1936). This is generally regarded as probably the most influential social science treatise of the 20th Century, in that it quickly and permanently changed the way the world looked at the economy and the role of government in society. No other single book, before or since, has had quite such an impact.'. Seller Inventory # 23799

About this Item: London, Macmillan, 1936., 1936. 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). Seller Inventory # 6488
