This selection is both thought-provoking and controversial. We frequently get comments and complaints about the omission of the great John Maynard Keynes from our page and this essay by Ken Ewert makes a rather unique case for excluding Keynes. Despite Keynes' influence on economics, and there is no doubt he was the most influential economist of the 20th century, he was antagonistic to the principles of classical liberal economics. It is interesting to note the consistency of classical liberal economics and the Judeo-Christian Ethic which underpins Mr. Ewert's essay. In future selections, we will be exploring this connection.
