  •  Banks are the lifeblood (0+ / 0-)

    of the economy.  That is obvious and Keynes never said the obvious.

    •  No, its not obvious (1+ / 0-)

       Banks aren't the lifeblood of the economy. The workers of the economy are.

      And Keynes DID say the obvious. Or have you forgotten "In the long run we are all dead."

      •  Taking Keynes' statements out of context (0+ / 0-)

        is a stupid game dilettantes love to play.

        If you knew Keynes, you would know he wasn't talking about life expectancy.

        •  Wrong (0+ / 0-)

          He was talking about life expectancy. He was just using it in a economics context.
           Looks like you're the dilettantes here.
