Keynes's General Theory, Treatise on Money and Tract on Monetary Reform: different theories, same methodological approach?

Anna Carabelli () and Mario Cedrini ()

The European Journal of the History of Economic Thought, 2014, vol. 21, issue 6, 1060-1084

Abstract: In trying to assess the content and significance of Keynes's attempted revolution in economic methodology, historians have almost exclusively focused on the General Theory . By highlighting the legacy of the Treatise on Probability for Keynes's economic writings, this article provides evidence of strong methodological continuity among the Tract on Monetary Reform , the Treatise on Money , and the General Theory , despite radical differences in the theories. We argue that the novelty of Keynes's approach lies in offering a method of analysis requiring cooperation on the part of the reader, in the effort to tackle the complexity of the economic material.
