...Keynes didn't say a single truth.
"In the long run we're all dead"?
also...As the inflation proceeds and the value of the currency fluctuates wildly from month to month, all permanent relations between debtors and creditors, which form the ultimate foundation of capitalism, become so utterly disordered as to be almost meaningless; and the process of wealth-getting degenerates into a gamble and a lottery.
Lenin was certainly right. There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and it does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose.
Wow, that was from keynes? Maybe we should all read him after all. Maybe I do some day.
I stick with this one:
"Gesell's chiefwork is written in cool and scientific terms, although it is run through by a more passionate and charged devotion to social justice than many think fit for a scholar. I believe that the future will learn more from Gesell’s than from Marx’s spirit."
—John Maynard Keynes
I like Gesell's critique to Marx a lot. I've read some small parts from Mises's, but I want to read that whole book.
