Theoretische Grundlagen demokratischer Wirtschafts- und Gesellschaftspolitik: Der Beitrag von John Maynard Keynes


  • Pies, Ingo


Dieser Beitrag gibt einen Überblick über den Lebenslauf von John Maynard Keynes und entwickelt darauf aufbauend folgende Thesen: (a) Keynes sah sich selbst nicht primär als Wissenschaftler, sondern als Publizist. (b) Seine „General Theory“ lässt sich am besten verstehen, wenn man sie als publizistischen Coup liest. (c) Keynes hatte moralische Vorbehalte gegenüber dem Kapitalismus, fühlte sich aber dennoch – ähnlich wie Hayek – in der Pflicht, als liberaler Publizist für den Erhalt der marktwirtschaftlichen Ordnung einzutreten, weil sie für ihn eine zivilisatorische Errungenschaft war.
