Summary of Keynes and the Market
How the World's Greatest Economist Overturned Conventional Wisdom and Made a Fortune on the Stock Market
Keynes wasn’t just a great economist. He also was one of the world’s best value investors. Here’s how he beat the market.
Now that everybody seems to be a Keynesian again, the perfect time may have arrived to revisit Keynes’ oft-overlooked – and wildly successful – strategies for succeeding in the stock market. This lively look at Keynes’ evolution as an investor is sure to convince readers that value investing is a wise approach. With pithy language and an engaging style, investment banker and financial reporter Justyn Walsh points out that Warren Buffett isn’t the only value investor worth emulating. Investors familiar with Buffett’s mantras will find little new advice here, but Walsh does an admirable job of casting Keynes’ life in a new light. He also concisely sums up Keynes’ economic theory. getAbstract recommends this book to investors looking for insight from one of capitalism’s great minds.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why economist John Maynard Keynes became a value investor and
