Keynes was a many-sided figure - world-changing economist, architect of the post-War international monetary system, bestselling author, a Baron in the House of Lords, and key member of the Bloomsbury group. One of his lesser-known talents was the ability to make vast sums of money on the stock market.
At the time of his death, Keynes' net worth - almost entirely built through successful stock investments - amounted to the present-day equivalent of more than $30 million.
But can an analysis of this particular incarnation of Keynes - the shrewd stock picker and star fund manager - be of any benefit to the modern investor? The answer is a resounding yes. Accessible and informative, this book identifies what modern masters of the market have taken from Keynes and used in their own investing styles - and what you too can learn from one of the greatest economic thinkers of the twentieth century.
