Great Keynes quote – Paul Krugman – Op-Ed Columnist – New York Times Blog

This is what one loves about the net the anonimity brings out the worst and the best from everyone!

John Maynard Keynes is my economic idol, which is why I jumped at the chance to write the intro to the new edition of The General Theory. But I’d never heard this quote, from today’s FT:

Presumably that was said in response to someone who called him shrill.
