Ross

I believe the answer is:

keynes

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'economist' is the definition.
(Keynes is an example)

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for keynes that I've seen before include "SECOND PART OF 15" , "See 14 Across" , "20th century economist" , "English economist, d. 1946" , "John Maynard --, English economist" .)
