Keynes and His Rivals

The New Republic has a very nice review essay by Robert Solow (the founding father of modern growth theory) on Sylvia Nasar's new book "Grand Pursuit: The Story of Economic Genius." I particularly liked these three sentences:
SCHUMPETER thought of Keynes as his natural rival for the title of “greatest economist.” They were born in the same year, 1883. Keynes probably did not believe that he had a natural rival.
