I'm grateful to Mark Thoma of Economist's View for calling my attention to "The End of Laissez-Faire," a pamphlet published by the Hogarth Press in 1926, based on the Sidney Ball lecture that Keynes delivered at Oxford in 1924. Thoma, an economics professor at the University of Oregon, reproduces the entire text, which is well worth reading in its entirety. (There are a few typos.)
