'A Chicago Economist's Perspective on John Maynard Keynes and Financial Crises'
Following the recent financial crises, some economists have suggested that the ideas of John Maynard Keynes might still offer the best framework we have for making sense of recessions. But modern economics have tools for analyzing financial markets that Keynes did not have. Professor Myerson will consider some of these tools, and then will re-examine the first source of Keynes's global reputation: his critique of the Treaty of Versailles.
