July 2009
Foreign Policy in Focus;7/8/2009, p4
The article focuses on a renewed interest in English economist John Maynard Keynes as of 2009. It states that his revival was considered as one of the consequences of the collapse of neoliberal economics. The stimulus plan of U.S. President Barack Obama is said to be suggestive of the economic theories and programs ascribed to the economist. Key rule designated for revitalizing capitalism in the context of the climate crisis is believed to be the greatest obstacle to a revived Keynesianism.
