Born 5 June 1883: John Maynard Keynes

John Maynard Keynes, a revolutionary figure in economic thought, was born on June 5th, 1883, in Cambridge, England. The son of an economist father and a socially progressive mother, Keynes was surrounded by intellectual pursuits from a young age. He excelled academically, attending prestigious institutions like Eton College and King’s College, Cambridge, where he initially studied mathematics before gravitating towards economics. This early mathematical training would prove invaluable in his later economic theories, which would challenge traditional thinking and lay the foundation for Keynesian economics, a dominant force in macroeconomics to this day.
