„If you were going to turn to only one economist to understand the problems facing the economy, there is little doubt that the economist would be John Maynard Keynes. Although Keynes died more than a half-century ago, his diagnosis of recessions and depressions remains the foundation of modern macroeconomics. His insights go a long way toward explaining the challenges we now confront.“

„If we are to go only half way, or reduce our sights in the face of difficulty, in my judgment it would be better not to go at all.“

—  John F. Kennedy 35th president of the United States of America 1917 - 1963

If we are to go only half way, or reduce our sights in the face of difficulty, in my judgment it would be better not to go at all.

„To understand the economy then is to comprehend how it is driven by the animal spirits. Just as Adam Smith’s invisible hand is the keynote of classical economics, Keynes’ animal spirits are the keynote to a different view of the economy — a view that explains the underlying instabilities of capitalism.“
