keynes quotesHere are two Keynes quotes everyone should see:

“The best way to destroy the capitalist system is to debauch the currency. By a continuing process of inflation, government can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens.” — John Maynard Keynes

“I work for a government I despise for ends I think criminal.” — John Maynard Keynes

If these don’t justify the immediate cessation of Keynesian policies — like quantitative easing, and targeted inflation — I don’t know what does. But of course, such an about-face would not be politically expedient.

Regardless: to all my detractors who claim Keynes ate his own cooking, I submit the above two quotations.
