Formatted abstract
If, as Lytton Strachey once insisted, ignorance is the first requisite of the historian, the three decades of the anti-Keynesian revolution are now ripe for serious appraisal. These are the decades that Australians recognize as the period of economic rationalism. Conventional interpretation of the period cites its accomplishments as derivatives of understanding — an understanding of wealth-creation arrangements, of market processes, of the necessity of liberalizing “reforms”, of cumulative insights into how economies work and of the effects of (modest levels of) democracy in the modern world. All this is now recognized as sophisticated ignorance.
