Abstract

In 1930, John Maynard Keynes travelled to Madrid to deliver an address titled “Possible Economic Situation of our Grandchildren”. In this visit, he gave an autographed note to a little girl, of just eight years of age, telling her that “she is living in the midst of the creation of what is more noble and desirable in civilisation.” This paper explores the historical facts of Keynes’s visit in Madrid and tries to find out who –and what kind of vision– most influenced Keynes in his conception of the ideal society.
