By Murray N. Rothbard
John Maynard Keynes, the man — his character, his writings, and his actions throughout life — was composed of three guiding and interacting elements. The first was his overweening egotism, which assured him that he could handle all intellectual problems quickly and accurately and led him to scorn any general principles that might curb his unbridled ego. The second was his strong sense that he was born into, and destined to be a leader of, Great Britain's ruling elite.
Comment: Look for more stories about Keynesianism on here, it is a great intellectual tool of our Masters and is essentially neo-mercantilism. The Austrian School has been great to debunk this tired, archaic, yet popular form of oppression.
