Riversdale Waldegrave read Chinese at Oxford. On graduating he was commissioned by Odey Asset Management to produce a research paper on the investment strategies of Maynard Keynes, the 'investor extraordinaire'.
This book is about Keynes' activities as an investor and his thoughts on investment, set against the backdrop of his extraordinary life. Using sources from King's College Cambridge archives and elsewhere it will construct a more complete picture than ever before of Keynes's investment activities. By coupling this information with Keynes's extensive correspondence about investment, it will reveal not only what Keynes did, but why he did it. Crispin Odey, one of London’s best-known hedge fund managers, has offered to write the introduction to the book.
