Institute of International Monetary Research’s 2019 Public Lecture, by R. Skidelsky.
Few figures in British economics are more interesting and outspoken than Lord Skidelsky. In his latest book, ‘Money and Government: A Challenge to Mainstream Economics’ (Penguin, 2018), Skidelsky questioned the consensus model in macroeconomics.
He revisited the virtues of the Keynesian alternative, in which the government plays an active role in a modern economy and, in particular, sees fiscal policy as an important ingredient of macroeconomic management.
