Oops! That should have been "chuckling," not "chucking"!

Oh well. Carry on.


"He had lived through an age when men and women with energy and ruthlessness but without much ability or persistence excelled. And even though most of them had gone under, their ignorance had confused Roy, making him wonder whether the things he had striven to learn, and thought of as 'culture,' were irrelevant. Everything was supposed to be the same: commercials, Beethoven's late quartets, pop records, shopfronts, Freud, multi-coloured hair. Greatness, comparison, value, depth: gone, gone, gone. Anything could give some pleasure; he saw that. But not everything provided the sustenance of a deeper understanding." - Hanif Kureishi, Love in a Blue Time

I can't deny his influence on global economics, but I can suggest that he influenced the world badly.
So, this begs the question, what is so wrong with Keynesian economics?
No, I really want to know. I have always felt compassionate about those who misunderstood Keynes, and have therefore had this urge to help. This is the wonderfully just human being I am. Whats your problem with Keynes?
