Abstract

The General Theory is a controversial book, which raises questions about the nature of its assumptions and conclusions. The answers to these questions led to different interpretations which were not mutually compatible and gave rise to controversies and, in some cases, even to distorted interpretations, which transformed the message of the General Theory into something completely different. This paper discusses a few of the distortions to which Victoria Chick, together with others, has drawn attention over the years and puts forward a suggestion of why the General Theory might have be liable to be misinterpreted.
