More Than An Economist: "Universal Man"

Basic Books

The Great Recession featured many arguments over the correct role of government in restoring the economy to health. 

Austerity and tax cuts?  Or "Keynesian-style" stimulus? 

The man whose name is at the center of that phrase is also at the center of a new biography: Universal Man

Author Richard Davenport-Hines wanted a more accessible biography of John Maynard Keynes, one that goes beyond a simple focus on economics. 

The author joins us for a discussion of Keynes' importance, with and without numbers.
