  • A Ditch-Digging Based Economy

    I have a friend who is an avowed leftist, but his belief system is based solely upon vaguely understood soundbites. During a discussion, I asserted that many of FDR's policies were almost the literal equivalent of digging ditches and then refilling them, to which he replied, "Well, what's...

  • Guy says money creates production out of thin air.

  • Skidelsky on Keynes, savings and investment

    I just watched the following interview Econstories got Robert Skidelsky to do with them: I feel Skidelsky makes a useful point at 7:47, relaying a skepticism Keynes had about the connection between savings and interest rates. When people make savings, they may...
