ESSAYS IN PERSUASION

(New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1932).

THE AUTHOR'S FIRST COLLECTION OF ESSAYS, what he calls "the croakings of a Cassandra who could never influence the course of events in time." Here one of the most famous and influential economists of the modern era provides his prophecies arranged into five categories; The Treaty of Peace, Inflation and Deflation, The Return to the Gold Standard, Politics, and the Future.
Unlike the author's more purely economic texts, his intended audience of 'Essays in Persuasion' was the general public. In light of future history many of the them are remarkably prophetic. Throughout them we also see the groundwork being laid for his primary work on economics, "The General Theory of Employment Interest and Money." Item #31390
