Keynes himself declared that he would have the government bury newly printed in cash in abandoned mines as a way to stimulate industry.

The man was cleary a nut.

And anyone that embraces the Keynesian vision of economics is a fool.

I am not sure I understand what the point of your article is? Keynesian works or it does not. You are saying not all sending (example military) will help grow an economy, by deduction it means targeted government spending can. Or am I missing something?

While rates are low, we should take care of needed infrastructure, plus give jobs a boost (don't know what many have on their resumes for this lost 1/2 decade). The Fed has created plenty of dollars to shore up the banks but very little has trickled down.

Agreed professor. Too bad your thinking is beyond the imagining for most CONS.

Not bad. Regardless, we need to start spending a lot more money on our infrastructure.
