Format: Hardcover
This book contains a series of chapters whose authors have no understanding of the fundamental foundation of Keynes's economics-the analysis contained in chapters 20 and 21 of the GT that demonstrated the existence of multiple possible ,expected unemployment,or underemployment ,equilibria.Keynes's theory of effective demand is completely worked out in detail in chapters 20 and 21 using the D-Z model.The crucial construction is Keynes's aggregate supply curve,a locus of D=Z outcomes,that shows that a capitalist economy can be in a position of Unemployment Equilibrium once expectations are brought into the picture.Only one of the equilibriums is a full employment equilibrium.All of the other equilibria are unemployment equilibriums.This fundamental result iis nowhere to be found in this book.

The fundamental theoretical point made by Keynes is not covered anywhere in the book.I do not recommend that this book be purchased or read.It will only lead to confusion and misunderstandings on the part of the reader.
