Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Aims and Content
The aim of this course is to introduce students to Keynes' classic The General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money on an introductory level in 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 evaluate the theoretical and historical background, as well as the achievements and main criticism of Keynes' book.
Methods
Teaching consists of one unbroken 90-minute seminar; discussion of different text passages which have to be prepared on the basis of questions distributed in advance for every meeting; presentation and discussion of answers for every meeting.

In addition they are required to summarize each chapter of Keynes' The General Theory in writing 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. By the end of the course students have to make an individual appointment and discuss their work with me; the final grade to be awarded will be jointly determined.
