Project Gutenberg ( http://www.gutenberg.org ) now has Keynes' essay The Great Slump of 1930 free online.
 
You may well find some contemporary relevance....
This is a nightmare, which will pass away with the morning. For the resources of nature and men’s devices are just as fertile and productive as they were. The rate of our progress towards solving the material problems of life is not less rapid. We are as capable as before of affording for everyone a high standard of life—high, I mean, compared with, say, twenty years ago—and will soon learn to afford a standard higher still. We were not previously deceived. But to-day we have involved ourselves in a colossal muddle, having blundered in the control of a delicate machine, the working of which we do not understand. The result is that our possibilities of wealth may run to waste for a time—perhaps for a long time.

Opuslola, you do have a way of kicking it up without realizing it.  Gcle2000 was one of the most militant of those who wanted to take over the forum from Cyrus.  I used to have a great deal of respect for the man.  Graham is an author of some note in the UK and his age,[mid 70's] should give him a more liberal view. However, it appears to be the opposite.  He seems to have decided that being an angry old man is the easiest route to travel.  So don't expect to see him back anytime soon.
