by Robert Skidelsky
The “Money and Government: A Challenge to Mainstream Economics” is an informative book that reveals economic thought. Robert Skidelsky is the author of this book. Robert is a British economic historian. He is the author of a three-volume award-winning biography of British economist. His books engage all the reader from start to end of the page. He is a Professor of Political Economy at the University of Warwick. In this book, Robert unites his experience, knowledge, and talents in a sweeping account of money and power. This book aims to familiarize the reader with the essential elements of Keynes’s big idea. It aims to embolden the next generation of economists to break free from their conceptual prisons and afford the money and government the starring roles in the economic drama.
Furthermore, Money and Government could point to the path that we need to take to get over the failures of neoclassical economics, which politicians have used for so long to keep the 1% rich and the rest of us poorer and poorer. Austerity is constantly tried and constantly failed, except in one way, to make the rich richer by destroying viable economic relations. All in all, Money and Government is a great history book of economic thought.
