Tyler Cowan Reads Keynes (So You Don't Have To?)

keynes.jpg George Mason University economics professor Tyler Cowan is going through Keynes' General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money chapter by chapter "with an eye toward a deeper understanding of what Keynes wrote and why it is so important". Here's his analysis so far: Cowan is taking a break for the end of the semester but promises to pick back up in January. I'm nearing the end of my Schumpeter biography and hope to catch up on Keynes and start following along in real time then.

Update: Ryan Romanchuk (@rromanchuk) via Twitter: "Henry Hazlitt also wrote a book called 'The Failure of New Economics' that also does a chap by chap analysis The General Theory". A PDF of the whole book can be found here. Thanks, Ryan!
