This paper presents a synthesis of Hyman Minsky’s basic thought about capitalist
instability identifying it with the Keynes’ The General Theory. It stands out especially
– focusing the Minsky’s book John Maynard Keynes (1975) – the importance of financial
relations on the capitalist accumulation process like this author conceives them.
