John Maynard Keynes and his performance in the insurance market

This book is the outcome of the research project of the National School of Insurance entitled “Insurance and Financial Crisis: impacts in the insurance industry: From Keynes to the current crisis of 2012”. The results of this project were reported and gave rise to two books. The first one is this, “John Maynard Keynes and his economic performance in the insurance market”, and the second, “From Keynes to the current Economic Crisis of 2012”. The author reveals in this first volume that Keynes, great economist of the 20th century, was president of the National Mutual Life Assurance Society, and, as such, an innovator in the understanding of risk management.
