In partnership with the Library Network, the WBG 1818 Society invites you to a discussion with Zachary D. Carter, author of The Price of Peace: Money, Democracy, and the Life of John Maynard Keynes.

Moderated by World Bank consultant and commentator Thomas Blinkhorn, this riveting biography unearths the lost legacy of one of history’s most fascinating minds. The Price of Peace revives a forgotten set of ideas about democracy, money, and the good life with transformative implications for today’s debates over inequality and the power politics that shape the global order.

The Price of Peace: Money, Democracy, and the Life of John Maynard Keynes is a New York Times National bestseller and a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award.

“A timely, lucid and compelling portrait of a man whose enduring relevance is always heightened when crisis strikes.” – The Wall Street Journal

“A spectacular new biography that points a rich and textured portrait of the great economist and locates his ideas within the broad sweep of economic and intellectual history.”
– The Washington Post

Attendees of this event will be automatically entered in a raffle for a copy of this book.
