Keynesian Economics

John Maynard Keynes (1883-1946) was interested in the level of national income and the volume of employment rather than in the equilibrium of the firm or the allocation of resources. 

He was still concerned with the problem of demand and supply, but “demand” in the Keynesian model means the total level of effective demand in the economy, while “supply” means the country’s capacity to produce. When effective demand falls short of productive capacity, the result is unemployment and depression; conversely, when demand exceeds the capacity to produce, the result is inflation.

It is normal not to feel any special passion for your work.

This idea has done lots of damage because when people can't find work they love, they tend to feel there's something wrong with them.

Most of the world works principally for money. We might do better if we're taught to find work we're decent at and don't hate.
