Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Guided reading of Keynes' The General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money.
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.

Assessment and permitted materials

grades are awarded according to the following principles: 1) presentation of talk (40%; 2) summaries of chapters (40%); 3) discussion (20%)

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The aim of this course is to introduce students to Keynes' classic The General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money on an introductory level. Unfortunately the tight curriculum leaves no time for reading classical economic literature and this course provides the special opportunity to study Keynes' classic.

Examination topics

Teaching consists in one unbroke 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.

Reading list

Principal reading: J.M. Keynes, The General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money, Harcourt, Brace, 1936 and later editions; A. Hansen, A Guide to keynes, Mc Graw-Hill, London 1953.
