“..insofar as he paid any attention to people outside that tribe, his enemy was stupid pseudo-economists who didn’t understand what they were talking about but who, with attention-grabbing titles and simplistic ideas, persuaded lots of powerful people to listen to them…”

Interesting both for what is emphasised and not mentioned at all.

Still no awareness of what he has helped to foist on the world. It sems he is the acceptable face of economics nowadays in the USA. Bernanke and Goldspan?
