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:

Words ought to be a little wild, for they are the assaults of thoughts on the unthinking.

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