Keynes, Hobson, Marx. (Keynes, Hobson, Marx)


  • Robert Skidelsky


Parole chiave:

economic crisis, uncertainty, institutional economics, under-consumption


The work compares the relative strenghts, in understanding the current crisis, of the Keynesian tradition with those of two non-Keynesian traditions: those which emphasise income inequality and those which emphasise power. In other words, Hobson and Marx.

Text of a speech given at the Post-Keynesian conference ‘Reclaiming the Keynesian Revolution’ in Kansas City.
