Professor Rod O”Donnell is currently engaged in preparing a major edition of the remaining unpublished writings of JM Keynes, of which there remains a HUGE quantity of valuable material scattered across many archives in several countries. Since standard sources of funds for this kind of research have dried up, he has turned to crowdfunding.
The CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN begins 11 OCTOBER 2016 on INDIEGOGO.
OVERALL AIM: To complete the publication of ALL of Keynes’s unpublished writings of academic significance. Only about ONE THIRD were published in the Royal Economic Society edition.
AIM OF THIS CAMPAIGN: Preparation of the Eton and early Cambridge volumes.
CAMPAIGN START: 11 October 2016.
TO LOCATE PROJECT: Google ‘JMK Writings Project Indiegogo’ (but not before the start date).
It is also planned, with publisher cooperation, for the campaign to assist selected universities in developing countries.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
- Spread the word prior to the launch – to academic colleagues (in economics or elsewhere), students in classes, conference participants, policy-makers, parliamentarians, philanthropists etc.
- Make, and encourage, donations, of ANY size, according to your situation, especially on the first or second day of the campaign. Experience shows that strong starts are correlated with strong finishes.
