A apologia do Estado: gastar o dinheiro que o próprio imprime

O Mestre ilumina:
«The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas as in escaping from old ones.»
John Maynard Keynes
E o Discípulo evangeliza:

«This is hard to get people to do, much better, obviously, to build bridges and roads and healthcare clinics and schools. But my proposal, I actually have a serious proposal which is that we have to get a bunch of scientists to tell us that we're facing a threatened alien invasion, and in order to be prepared for that alien invasion we have to do things like build high-speed rail. And the, once we've recovered, we can say, "Look, there were no aliens."»

But look, I mean, whatever it takes because right now we need somebody to spend, and that somebody has to be the U.S. government.»
Via Krugman in Wonderland
