The effects of 2008 are still with us today. As restricted growth and austerity have endured, so has the profound crisis of ideas the financial crisis precipitated. In Money and Government, Robert Skidelsky accounts for the causes of the crash. He shows that the underlying causes have not been dealt with, and examines what the failures - by politicians and economists - mean for economics.

Reviews for Money and Government: A Challenge to Mainstream Economics

Skidelsky, historian and biographer of Keynes, is a major figure in the revival of Keynesian thought since the financial crisis. His aim in this ambitious new book is to argue that pervasive uncertainty, which Keynes emphasised in his seminal theory of the 1930s, explains why money and governments must be central players in any market economy. -- Martin Wolf * Financial Times (Books of the Year) *
