Keynes, Keynes Go Away

John Maynard Keynes died in 1946 and once uttered the famous line, "In the long run we're all dead." This is true, but unfortunately his crackpot theories remain. Thankfully, a new book, Where Keynes Went Wrong by Hunter Lewis sheds some light on Keynes' flawed and contradictory logic.

There is an excellent review of it on Mises.org.


  1. Have you read Henry Hazlitt, Economics in One Lesson? Great book for understanding why things are the way they are and why Obamanomics will only cause more problems.


  2. I read that a long time ago, but I didn't realize at the time that he was part of the Austrian School. In fact, Hazlitt helped Ludwig von Mises a great deal when he came over here after fleeing from Europe. Mises had to start completely over again and knew hardly any English, so Hazlitt helped set him up in New York, where he conducted his famous seminars.
