“The ideas of economists and political philosophers, both when they are right and when they are wrong, are more powerful than is commonly understood. Indeed the world is ruled by little else.” Keynes magnum opus, published in 1936, revolutionized modern economics in its analysis of the market economy. Written after the Great Depression, Keynes sought to disprove a classical notion of economics by offering a theory of self-correction of the market economy after a total shock, such as he and his contemporaries had recently experienced. Today, the Keynesian theory of economics continues to its relevance in modern society and has influenced the teaching of modern economics in universities across the globe.
