Dealer Notes
How to Pay for the War: A Radical Plan for the Chancellor of the Exchequer is an application of Keynesian thinking and principles to a practical economic problem, and a relatively late text [Keynes died in 1946]. Keynes describes a macroeconomic strategy of how Britain, a nation with a population at the time of 40 million people, could conduct a long war against Germany, a nation of 80 million. At the time "How to Pay for the War" was written, neither the United States nor the Soviet Union were at war with either Germany or Japan. As a result, the first step for Britain to effectively conduct a war against Germany was to mobilize all its resources for production. Keynes maintained, however, that the resources of Britain, even at full employment, would not suffice to conduct a war against Germany.
