Economist. His work gave his name to a subfield of Macroeconomics called "Keynesian economics". His popular expression "In the long run we are all dead" is still quoted. He started his professional career lecturing at Cambridge and then proceeded to apply economic theory to practical problems at various state positions such as the Adviser to the Chancellor of the Exchequer and to the Treasury on Financial and Economic Questions. Among his responsibilities were the design of terms of credit between Britain and its continental allies during the war, and the acquisition of scarce currencies. In his most important book 'The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money' he analyzed the economic activity influenced by the Great Depression and how it affected the society well-being. By the beginning of the 1940s he was a highly recognized economist and was raised to the House of Lords as Baron Keynes, of Tilton in the County of Sussex. Keynes wanted to be buried in the chapel of King's College, Cambridge. But his brother (Sir Geoffrey Keynes, an eminent surgeon) was unaware of Keynes' wishes, and the great economist was instead cremated. His ashes were scattered on the Downs at Tilton, in Sussex.
