In 1930 the great economist Keynes predicted that; over the next century; income would rise steadily; people's basic needs would be met and no one would have to work more than fifteen hours a week. Why was he wrong? Robert and Edward Skidelsky argue that wealth is not - or should not be - an end in itself; but a means to 'the good life'. Tracing the concept from Aristotle to the present; they show how far modern life has strayed from that ideal. They reject the idea that there is any single measure of human progress; whether GDP or 'happiness'; and instead describe the seven elements which; they argue; make up the good life; and the policies that could realize them. ROBERT SKIDELSKY is Emeritus Professor of Political Economy at the University of Warwick. His biography of Keynes received numerous prizes; including the Lionel Gelber Prize and the Council on Foreign Relations Prize for International Relations. He was made a life peer in 1991; and a Fellow of the British Academy in 1994. EDWARD SKIDELSKY is a lecturer in the Philosophy Department of the University of Exeter. He contributes regularly to the New Statesman; Spectator and Prospect. His previous books include The Conditions of Goodness and Ernst Cassirer: The Last Philosopher of Culture.
