Is there any reason that this article is entitled "Keynesians" rather than "Keynesianism"? -- Winston Gee 20:38, 30 April 2007 (CDT)

I support Winston Gee's suggestion of a change of title. The article says much about the economists involved but little about their economics.Nick Gardner 08:17, 12 November 2007 (CST)

There being no objections, I have retitled the article as suggested. Nick Gardner 11:10, 29 October 2009 (UTC)

I see no title change! –Tom Morris 12:09, 19 November 2009 (UTC)

I changed the title back from Keynesianism to its former title of Keynesians on the grounds that it fails to explain Keynes' theory, and could not easily be amended to do so. I acknowledge that the article is unsatisfactory as it stands, and I plan to to edit out some of its errors and unbacked assertions - and add some more on their economic analysis - in due course. In the meantime I am drafting an article on Keynesian theory and editing the article on IS-LM model in order to fill in the gap in CZ coverage of Keynesianism.
