The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

The Economic Consequences of the Peace - John Maynard Keynes - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book The Economic Consequences of the Peace:

An economic statement about the Treaty of Versailles.

My favorite John Maynard Keynes quote from the book:

"The power to become habituated to his surroundings is a marked characteristic of mankind."

Questions I pondered while reading The Economic Consequences of the Peace:

Did the economic crippling after WWI help?

Why do we view war as inevitable?  

My thoughts about The Economic Consequences of the Peace:

Good theory to know.

War should not equal profit.

The financial destruction of another country is a dangerous situation.
