Lydia Lopokova thought that economists were “tiresome, [with] no wide outlooks, no touch with life, inferiority complexes, and no great ideas.” Yet that didn’t stop her from having what was, by this account at least, a deeply caring relationship with her husband. Nor from thinking that his final book – The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money – was “beautiful like Bach.”

She sailed over the pettiness of the Bloomsbury Group too, and had a down to earth approach to her own career, which treated it mostly as a means to an end – her own happiness.

Yay for Mrs Keynes.
