1. the proBleM oF uneMployMent This outline was originally written during the war with the intention of helping to stimulate discussion of how to avoid the pre-war evil of mass unemployment. Since the war unemployment has not been a seri-ous national problem (though it is still a severe hardship to individuals on whom it falls).File Size: KB. The present book, in a rigorous but non-mathematical presentation, makes clear the endogenous money output links that are consistent with Keynes’s General Theory-led insights. More specifically, this understanding separates out Keynes’s interest rate determination from that of the determination that underlies RBI’s inflation targeting. Studies in macroeconomics are a recent economic innovation, which began in large part with John Maynard Keynes’ work in the s. As the title of “The General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money” would indicate, much of Keynes’ ideas focused on unemployment.
