Happy Birthday to two economic giants, Adam Smith & John Maynard Keynes

“It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest.”

~ Adam Smith (Scottish philosopher and economist, 1723-1790)

“The best way to destroy the capitalist system is to debauch the currency. By a continuing process of inflation, governments can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens.”

~John Maynard Keynes (English economist, journalist, and financier, 1883-1946)
