= PMM 423: "The world-wide slump after 1929 prompted Keynes to attempt an explanation of, and new methods for controlling, the vagaries of the trade-cycle. First in A Treatise on Money, 1930, and later in his General Theory, he subjected the definitions and theories of the classical school of economists to a penetrating scrutiny and found them seriously inadequate and inaccurate. By-passing what he termed the 'underworlds' of Marx, Gesell and Major Douglas, he propounded a hardly less unorthodox programme for national and international official monetary policies. (...) In 1936 (...) The General Theory (...) threw the economists of the world into two violently opposed camps. Yet eight years later Keynes was to dominate the international conference at Bretton Woods, out of which came the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank".

[...] He was able to arrive at results similar to those of Champollion, but he was not as interested in hieroglyphs as he was in the tomb paintings which he studied intensively to discover what he could of everyday life in ancient Egypt. A fascinating work." SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE XLII.
