The Eclipse of Keynesianism

The Political Economy of the Chicago Counter-Revolution

  • Robert Leeson

About this book


This book examines the process by which Keynesianism, with its sympathetic view of the role of government in the economy and society, lost influence amongst economists and policy makers and was replaced by more negative views about government intervention and more positive views about the role of the market as a social organiser.
