Quotations, including a new one

La guerre! C’est une chose trop grave pour la confier à des militaires.
(War! That is something too serious to trust to military men.)
Georges Clemenceau

Practical men, who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influence, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist. Madmen in authority, who hear voices in the air, are distilling their frenzy from some academic scribbler of a few years back.
John Maynard Keynes

The Economy! That is too important to trust to practical men. Lets make sure it is in the hands of the best living economist we can find.
John Daly
