  1. Chuckles, delightful quote. Keynes failed a civil service exam and later stated it was because he knew more about economics than the testers. Delightful quotes. The study of politics is to question who gets what, when, where are why. It appears Mr. Keynes commodifies freedom and justice. Bright thing to do considering one can see the effects of their percieved denial or application, particularly when coaching little league softball.

  3. Glad you could join us in the blogosphere brother Jer, your wisdom is always appreciated. Half & seven is solid, the Muhammadites are on to something with stonings and burqas too. Did you know Keynes was probably boning Ludwig Wittgenstein?
