I’ll follow up your recommendations.

Keynes doesn't count--I'm super current on Keynes.
Just for entertainment value, have you seen the Keynes v. Hayek rap on Youtube?
If you're actually interested in and reasonably informed about the economics they're pretty funny. For most people, they're kind of pointless though.
Side note; I found Niall Kishtainy's A Little History of Economics to be a really nice overview of the development of economic thought, with a ton of references to guide me to further reading. If you're interested in this kind of stuff, I highly recommend it.

I think you’ll find David Harvey (a geographer, like me, it so happens) has worked Marx’s model to make it account for what we’re seeing today (as here: https://socialistregister.com/index.php ... /5811/2707). Harvey’s polemic-free clarity and his rigor are really on display in his online courses on Capital (http://davidharvey.org/reading-capital/).
