But he was also engaged, in a considerable number of parallel activities as, sition of his general vision and systematic analysis of the entire economic system with, extent, more a matter of circumstances than of deliberate choice. Sanz (2005) presents an edited volume representing research in various subfields, Although Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD) affects millions of females worldwide, our understanding of AD/HD continues to be based heavily on male-dominated research. Whil, Keynes created and managed for his college a strong position in equities, a policy, he tried to maintain also after 1929. Finally, there are two classes of investments, scope of at least some of his institutional dealings, although, as the correspondence, and the Provincial, however. While the former has been thoroughly analysed, especially by Wasik (2013) and, Woods (2013), we believe there is still more to be done on the latt, private correspondence in which Keynes promoted, investment strategy. However, decision-making in a context of uncertainty should not imply the impossibility of making decisions according to reason, although the reason involved here is not the rationality employed in orthodox economic theory. We provide an extensive quantitative appraisal of his performance over a quarter century and present detailed analysis of his archived trading records. <>/F 4/A<>>> Finally, an examination of the Service’s forecasting record in the period leading up to the US stock market crash in October 1929 finds that it did not match up to the promises made at its launch. x�+�r Our reconstruction of Keynes’s operations in the wheat futures markets constitute further confirmation of the view – shared in the literature (Chambers and Dimson 2013, Marcuzzo and Sanfilippo 2016) – that a change occurred in Keynes’s speculative style (both in stocks and in commodities) around the beginning of the 1930s, when he abandoned a short-term type investment behaviour in favour of a long-term investor perspective. Until 1933, Keynes’s outlook on the USA remained negative.
