The book The General Law of Capitalist Accumulation in Latin America and Beyond: Actuality and Pertinence is written by Lorenzo Fusaro and Leinad Johan Alcalá Sandoval. In 1930, when the Great Depression was causing deep economic and social distress, leading to the questioning of the capitalist economic order, Keynes proposed taking wings into the future, asking: “What can we reasonably expect from the level of our economic life? in a hundred years? What are the economic possibilities for our grandchildren? (Keynes 1930). Furthermore, he responded to these questions by arguing that the pessimistic views he was up against should be discarded. Because thanks to the accumulation of capital and, along with it, technological improvements and compound interest rates, the future, according to the British economist, seemed bright.
