Keynes and all that

Mal ein erfrischend vernünftiger Kommentar von jemandem, der eher dem republikanischen Lager in den USA zuzuordnen ist.

Bruce Bartlett schreibt über das Denken in ökonomische Denken in verschiedenen Schubladen. Er schließt:
"I think Milton Friedman was right that in a sense we are all Keynesians and not Keynesians at the same time. What I think he meant is that no one advocates Keynesian stimulus at all times, but that there are times, like now, when it is desperately needed. At other times we may need to be monetarists, institutionalists or whatever. We should avoid dogmatic attachment to any particular school of economic thought and use proper analysis to figure out the nature of our economic problem at that particular moment and the proper policy to deal with it."
