When unbridled capitalism falters, is there an alternative? The smartest and, for most of the century, most influential economist, tells us that there is. 'In the long run,' Keynes famously said, 'we are all dead'. But John Maynard Keynes has never been quite dead, and has led a ghostly half-life in the corridors of central banks, treasuries and in the economics profession for decades. In the current financial crisis Keynes has been taken out of his cupboard, dusted down, consulted, cited, invoked and appealed to about how a rescue operation can be effected. But very little attention has so far been paid to Keynes's explanation of why economies experience these sorts of collapses. There are three main ideas of Keynes's worth thinking about now. The first is that the future is unknowable, and therefore that economic storms, especially those originating in the financial system, are not random shocks which impinge on smoothly-adjusting markets, but part of the normal working of the market system. The second idea is that economies wounded by these 'shocks' can, if left to themselves, stay in a depressed condition for a long time. That is why governments need to have and use fiscal ammunition to prevent a slide from financial crisis to economic depression. The third is a moral critique of societies which worship the pursuit of money and efficiency above all other objects of human striving. No one has bettered Keynes's description of the psychology of investors during a financial crisis: 'The practice of calmness and immobility, of certainty and security, suddenly breaks down. New fears and hopes will, without warning, take charge of human conduct . . . the market will be subject to waves of optimistic and pessimistic sentiment'. The ideas of John Maynard Keynes have never been more timely.
How Keynes developed his doctrine from his 1st book in 1913 to 1947; how Keynes' theories departed from his contemporaries and predecessors; its impact on everyday economic policy.

In this, his greatest novel, Dr. Cronin presents a vital human theme through the life story of a, simple man who will be loved and remembered as long as the printed page is read. "The Keys of the Kingdom" will hold you because of the story, rich in the dramatic scenes for which Dr. Cronin is famous; and still more because of its chief character, Francis Chisholm, Scots priest, a curious mixture of childlike simplicity and logical directness, who believed that tolerance was the highest virtue and that humility came next. By conventional standards a failure as a curate, he was given a vicariate in China; and there, for thirty-five years, a thousand miles from Tientsin, he labored to establish and maintain a mission in a Chinese village; there he struggled against indifference, famine, plague, bandits and civil war; there he searched for the eternal truths. Many other people throng the novel, his relatives, the girl he loved as a boy, the nuns who came to help' at his mission, priests and doctors, Chinese merchants,' peasants and officers. Valiant, humble, utterly individual, Francis Chisholm is becoming something more than a character in a book. To thousands upon thousands of readers regardless of creed or faith this Scots priest, hater of cant and lover of his fellowmen, is a truly human being. This is why more copies have been sold of "The Keys of the Kingdom" within four months of publication than were sold, in the same length of time, of any other book ever published by Little, Brown and Company in its one hundred and four years of publishing.

Why do some cities grow economically while others decline? Why do some show sustained economic performance while others cycle up and down? In Keys to the City, Michael Storper, one of the world's leading economic geographers, looks at why we should consider economic development issues within a regional context--at the level of the city-region--and why city economies develop unequally. Storper identifies four contexts that shape urban economic development: economic, institutional, innovational and interactional, and political. The book explores how these contexts operate and how they interact, leading to developmental success in some regions and failure in others. Demonstrating that the global economy is increasingly driven by its major cities, the keys to the city are the keys to global development. In his conclusion, Storper specifies eight rules of economic development targeted at policymakers. Keys to the City explains why economists, sociologists, and political scientists should take geography seriously.
