Keynesianism

John Maynard Keynes (1883-1946) was a British economist. He believed that there had to be an economic middle way between free capitalism, where people could make as much money as they liked at the expense of others, and state socialism, where the state controlled all industry and looked after the people.

His new idea was KENYNESIANISM. It was a middle way. He believed that depressions could be avoided if demand remained, when demand for goods fell this is when depression sets in. He argued it was the government’s role to keep demand high. To do this he believed that the government should raise money from its taxes and state industries, which is should then invest into the economy. If they had to go into debt to do this for the short term this was fine as in the long run as greater growth would happen and it could tax workers and companies to pay back any money they had borrowed. This would allow companies to have full order books and to maintain full employment. This in turn would allow workers to stimulate the demand for goods and services. The government followed Keynesianism until the 1970s.
