Can the government steer the economy or have past attempts helped create the mess we’re still in? In “Fight of the Century”, Keynes and Hayek weigh in on these central questions. Do we need more government spending or less?
What’s the evidence that government spending promotes prosperity in troubled times? Can war or natural disasters paradoxically be good for an economy in a slump?
