Gapper: John Maynard Keynes

‘Gapper’ is our term for famous people whom we probably should have profiled long ago.

Here’s a great one: John Maynard Keynes. Editor Paul Hehn, at the English economics desk, has just whipped up a nifty profile of Keynes, whose “notion that governments should intervene in times of market distress” seems awfully timely these days.

Keynes was a brainiac who also hung with Virginia Woolf as a young man. (Alan Greenspan was chums with Ayn Rand. What is it with economists and writers?)

Take a peek, won’t you?
