The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money is Keynes' masterpiece published right after the Great Depression. It sought to bring about a revolution, commonly referred to as the "Keynesian Revolution", in the way economists thought -- especially challenging the proposition that a market economy tends naturally to restore itself to full employment on its own. Regarded widely as the cornerstone of Keynesian thought, this book challenged the established classical economics and introduced new concepts. It remains a relevant topic of debate to this day, perhaps more than ever.

An interesting look at Economic theory of growing the money supply especially during a downturn. There are many parts to this theory, some of which hold up over time, other parts that do not. Certainly worth reading if you have a bit of grounding in economic jargon and theory.

I am not a natural at economic theory, but I understood the gist of this much better after watching the associated video. (See the "videos" tab.)
