This book puts to the test the predictions of a man who many consider to be the greatest economist of the twentieth century, John Maynard Keynes. It collects work of some of the most celebrated economists in the world, some of whom would be well disposed toward Keynes’s opinions and some of whom would be directly opposed to them. This book is about growth, inequality, wealth, work, leisure, culture, consumerism, and entrepreneurship. It contains three very important elements: a remarkably modern account of the determinants of economic growth, a set of predictions concerning living standards and working habits one hundred years on, and some speculations about people’s future lifestyles, based on his moral philosophy and aesthetical views.

Keywords:   twentieth century, John Maynard Keynes, growth, inequality, wealth, work, leisure, culture, consumerism, entrepreneurship
