"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"

It is incredible that Pigou's 1933 masterpiece,like Keynes's 1936 GT,has been ignored by an economics profession that is addicted to playing games with different specifications of normal distributions at the macro level.These manipulations are similar to the manipulations of epicycle models that dominated astronomy from 130 AD to 1635 AD.Any goodness of fit test will demonstrate that the macroeconomic data is not close to being normally distributed.It is interesting that Pigou recognized this but never attempted to formally integrate uncertain expectations into his mathematical model.Keynes was actually behind Pigou in terms of his recognition of the impact of uncertainty on expectations and the recognition of the role of optimism and pessimism.(Keynes's "animal spirits" of chapter 12 of the GT).It was in the GT that Keynes surpassed PIgou in this respect.
Every macroeconomist should have this book.It is easy to see that if Keynes's speculative demand for money,L2(M2),is equal to 0 that Keynes's GT results and Pigou's TTOU results are the same.
