So here we are with the 117th carnival of debt reduction. I’d like to take this opportunity to deepen your knowledge of famous Brits.

budgeting and finance with John Maynard Keynes

Keynes on right

John Maynard Keynes (1883-1946) developed a school of macroeconomics now called Keynesian economics.

He advocated government intervention to reduce the effects of recessions and depressions in the economy and was the leader of the British delegation to the 1944 Bretton Woods conference which established the World Bank and the IMF.

In the long run we are all dead.
