John Maynard Keynes is best known for his economic theories, but he was also a well-known and successful value investor, says John Wasik, author of "Keynes's Way to Wealth". Wasik explains Keynes method for making millions in the market including holding stocks for the long term, paying attention to dividends and cash flow management, as well as building diversified portfolios. Wasik says Keynes, who offered financial advice to Winston Churchill and FDR, would avoid tech names in today's market in favor of railroad and shipping stocks.
