Abstract

The title of this session is “An End-of-Century Retrospective View of the Keynesian Revolution”. In this century we are 90% of the way, so it is only a 10% error, but if you start with the beginning of the Christian Era, and our target is the year 2000, then we are only one half of a percent away; so we are alright … a fraction of a percent.
