The Forms of Organisation Implicit in the General Theory: An Interpretation of the Success and Crisis of Keynesian Economic Policies

  • Robert Boyer
Part of the Keynesian Studies book series (KST)

Abstract

Midway through the 1980s it is not easy to give an assessment of Keynes’s contribution to economics. During the 1960s many economists believed that Keynes’s ideas had produced not only a transformation of economic theory, but a reorientation of government policies and even a fundamental change in some key aspects of social, economic and financial organisation. Today, however, doubt has replaced certainty and the Keynesian inheritance is sharply contested.
