Can A Virulent Strain of Keynesianism Actually Be Cured?



Thanks to David Budge of Electric City Weblog out of Great Falls for pointing out this very useful scientific article in Forbes. The above picture of Lord Keynes was borrowed from Wikipedia and was taken before he died in 1946.

This might be the pull-quote from the article by Louis Woodhill that will save your or someone else's life: or maybe that is 'created or saved.' I'm a little worried about the retrovirus angle but it is what it is.

“We don’t know yet exactly how Keynesianism is spread,” said Harvard’s Dr. Rivers.  “However, it certainly makes sense to avoid contact with known carriers, like Paul Krugman.”

I think the carriers should be quarantined, and perhaps lobotomized!

Perhaps quarantine would be useful if it could be shown that the mode of spread is similar to some infectious diseases like smallpox, etc. Lobotomy seems a bit heavy-handed until we know more about its location in the brain and how it spreads from brain to brain. Thanks Matt for your help.

“In beholding old stones we may feel our anxieties about our achievements–and lack of them–slacken . . . Vast landscapes [and seascapes] can have an anxiety–reducing effect similar to ruins, for they are the representatives of infinite space, as ruins are the representatives of infinite time, against which our weak, short-lived bodies seem no less inconsequential than those of moths or spiders.”—Alain de Botton in Status Anxiety
