How pursuing wealth annihilates the arts of life. Interpretative essay of Economic Possibilities for our Grandchildren from J. M. Keynes (1930)

Antonin Pottier

Cahiers d’économie politique / Papers in Political Economy, 2014, issue 66, 7-34

Abstract: Keynes’ rationale in Economic Possibilities for our Grandchildren uses three pivotal themes: economic growth, man’s occupation and the love of money. Interpretations either focus on one specific theme, or disregard parts of the rationale. We consider the rationale as a whole and show that Keynes displays a criticism of capitalism, as it destroys the possibility to enjoy the affluence it has produced.
