hi guys,..
The term Post Keynesian was first used to refer to a distinct school of economic thought by Eichner and Kregel (1975) and by the establishment of the Journal of Post Keynesian Economics in 1978. Prior to 1975, and occasionally in more recent work, Post Keynesian could simply mean economics carried out after 1936, the date of Keynes's The General Theory.
i hope this will helps you,...

There is nothing to understand in your post. Why don't you take a start from only 1936 when economics carried out properly instead of discuss the further Datamations of history of Keynes's General Theory..
