First, the will to International cooperation is stronger. Second, we do have Keynes

"John Maynard Keynes was one of the seminal thinkers of the twentieth century, a luminary whose groundbreaking ideas remain even today at the center of political and economic discussion. In this work of clarity and erudition, Robert Skidelsky offers a revised and abridged version of his award-winning three-volume biography of Keynes, which has long been acclaimed as the authoritative account of the great economist-statesman's life. In one definitive volume, Skidelsky examines in its entirely the intellectual and ideological journey that led an extraordinarily gifted young man to concern himself with the practical problems of an age overshadowed by war. John Maynard Keynes offers a sympathetic account of the life and influences of a passionate visionary."--Jacket

Are markets moral? by Robert Skidelsky( Book )
12 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 79 libraries worldwide
This volume scrutinizes the functionality of a capitalist market society, which is usually praised for the efficiency and dynamism, rather than for its morality. It addresses the dualism behind capitalism's encouragement of greed, which is usually considered to be a moral failing, while also being a driver behind economic growth. What happens to the morality of a society in which money rules the roost? In this book, over a dozen philosophers and economists come together to examine the consequences of living in a society in which exchanges between people increasingly take the form of buying and selling goods and services for money. Based on conference papers and discussions, this volume asks, in which ways does money change us? Capitalism's encouragement of greed is often considered to be its main moral failing, while also being the source of its economic energy. But this book is not solely, or even mainly, about the 'greed' of capitalism. A major theme is the contamination of moral values, including those of security and equality, by money values. Instead of the market being embedded in society, society has come to be embedded in the market. Are Markets Moral? provides an insightful debate on the morality of a capitalist market, and is essential reading for scholars and researchers of economics and ethics, and it will also appeal to policy-makers, practitioners and the interested lay reader
