An economist of world renown, John Maynard Keynes was born in 1883 and educated at King's College, Cambridge. His two great works, "A Treatise on Money" (1930) and the revolutionary "General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money" (1936), were inspired by the employment crisis of the late 1920s. As a pioneer in the theory of full employment, Keynes had a profound influence on Roosevelt's New Deal and on the creation of such organizations as the International Monetary Fund, and his thinking continues to serve as the basis for classic economic theory today. Keynes was, in addition, a man of letters and a writer of consummate skill. He died in 1946.

An interesting look at Economic theory of growing the money supply especially during a downturn. There are many parts to this theory, some of which hold up over time, other parts that do not. Certainly worth reading if you have a bit of grounding in economic jargon and theory.

I am not a natural at economic theory, but I understood the gist of this much better after watching the associated video. (See the "videos" tab.)
