"In the world of economics and finance," Skidelsky writes, "Keynes had come to occupy the same position as Churchill in the world of politics" during WWII, even though his position as adviser to the chancellor of the exchequer was unofficial and unpaid. In the third and final volume of this definitive biography, Skidelsky, professor of political economy at England's Warwick University, depicts the great Bloomsbury fiscal philosopher as a tireless wartime activist.
