Mankiw Reviews Skidelsky on Keynes

Tweet [1]

Greg Mankiw, in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal, reviewed Robert Skidelsky’s new book on Keynes [2].  Here’s the concluding paragraph of this fine review:

Which brings us to a third group of macroeconomists: those who fall into neither the pro- nor the anti-Keynes camp. I count myself among the ambivalent. We credit both sides with making legitimate points, yet we watch with incredulity as the combatants take their enthusiasm or detestation too far. Keynes was a creative thinker and keen observer of economic events, but he left us with more hard questions than compelling answers.
