Keynes ended his book by dedicating it 'to the formation of the general opinion of the future'(p. 189). The general view has been that he was in that extremely successfulㅡtoo successful for many tastes. As Joseph Schumpeter remarked, the book 'met with a reception that makes the word success sound commonplace and insipid'.[29]  ( ... ... ) Keynes summed up the initial reaction as follows:

The book is being smothered ... in a deluge of approval; not a complaint, not a word of abuse, not a line of criticism; letters from Cabinet Ministers in every post saying that they agree with every word of it; etc, etc. I expect a chit from the PM at any moment telling me how profoundly the book represents his view and how beautifully it is put. Will it be my duty to refuse the Legion of Honour at the hand of Clemenceau. Well, I suppose this is their best and safest line.[33]
