Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The aim of this course is to introduce students to Keynes' classic The General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money on an introductory level and in the form of a guided reading. Unfortunately the tight curriculum leaves no time for reading classical economic literature and this course provides the special opportunity to study Keynes' classic.
Diligent students will learn to make sense and evalute the theoretical and historical background, as well as the achievements and main criticism of Keynes' book. Teaching consists in one unbroken 90-minute lecture/seminar weekly. Students have to produce one substantial talk (about 30 min) on the basis of Keynes' book. In addition they are required to summarise each chapter of Keynes' The General Theory on the basis of questions which they will receive in advance of every meeting. Also they have to attend the course on a regular basis and contribute in a lively manner to discussions at all classes.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Talks and written answers are assessed on the basis regarding the clarity and understanding with which problem situations, problems and their solutions are described; any material supporting this aim is permitted.
