A Documentary on Keynes

Continuing on the theme of Keynes, I note that there is an outstanding documentary at the Post Keynesian Economics Study Group on Keynes and his contributions to economics:

John Maynard Keynes – Life – Ideas – Legacy.

From 21.21 in his video, there is remarkable footage of Keynes himself talking about the abolition of the UK’s interwar Gold Standard – or the “Gold Cage,” as he calls it.

This is highly recommended.
