“Lord, what fools these mortals be!” – A Midsummer Night’s Dream

I’m reading Grand Pursuit by Sylvia Nasar right now.  It’s not nearly as good as A Beautiful Mind, but that isn’t actually the point.  The point is that I just read the passage (p. 245) where the British Prime Minister Lloyd George called the famous economist John Maynard Keynes “the Puck of economics” for being such a mischief maker during the Peace Conference in Paris after WWI.  If only PM George had listened to Keynes, more than mocked him, history might have been so different!
