Keynes seminar series

The Keynes seminar series, named after the great economist John Maynard Keynes, has consistently explored themes and issues in recent British political and economic history. Speakers have addressed the problems which preoccupied Keynes himself, notably the ability of modern democratic society to deliver high levels of employment, social security and a more equal distribution of wealth to its citizens.
