End of Laissez-Faire
1926. First Edition . KEYNES, John Maynard. The End of Laissez-Faire. London: Leonard & Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press, 1926. Small octavo, original half gray cloth, paper spine label, original dust jacket. $1800.First edition of this timely economic and philosophical discussion by the most important economist of the 20th century, in scarce original dust jacket.Stemming largely from Keynes' arguments in the Tract on Monetary Reform (1923), The End of Laissez-Faire is an examination of the role and responsibility of governments in ameliorating the economic hardships of their citizens, namely the problem of unemployment. Keynes draws on writings of Locke, Rousseau, Paley, Bentham, Adam Smith, Malthus, Ricardo and others to call for a re-appraisal of government policy in favor of a broader, more active role in providing economic assistance. The question of the harmful effects of laissez-faire policies became central to Keynes in his later work, when he helped to establish the economic framework within which public policy was to be considered. Book with a bit of discoloration to boards; scarce dust jacket bright and fine.
