Marx vs. Keynes

After financial markets were saved from a 1930s style collapse, the 'Great Recession' persists among an outraged population in the real economy. Some see a solution in Keynesian economics--calling this a crisis of 'overproduction,' 'under-consumption,' 'lack of demand.' Where does such thinking lead? Where did this view of crisis originate among Marxists after Marx? What is Marx's concept of a general crisis of capitalism and the inter-relation between the falling rate of profit, over-production, and under-consumption? What direction emerges for today from Marx's approach to crises?
