The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money is a book by English economist John Maynard Keynes, first published in 1936. The book attempts to explain why unemployment can remain high long after a recession is over, and argues that the level of employment is determined not by the price of labour, but by the level of aggregate demand. It caused a shift in economic thought when it was published, and brought about what is called the Keynesian Revolution - putting macroeconomics at the heart of economic theory. Covering subjects such as consumerism, investment, wages, and prices, Keynes' book was equally praised and criticised and in 2011 the book was placed on Time's top 100 non-fiction books.

Part of the Encyclopaedia Britannica’s Great Books of the Western World set.
