„Keynesianism for the rich countries and monetarism for the poor“

—  Ha-Joon Chang, livro Bad Samaritans: The Myth of Free Trade and the Secret History of Capitalism

Fonte: Bad Samaritans: The Myth of Free Trade and the Secret History of Capitalism (2008), Ch. 7, Keynesianism for the rich, monetarism for the poor, p. 158
Contexto: Gore Vidal, the American writer, once described the American economic system as 'free enterprise for the poor and socialism for the rich'. Macroeconomic policy on the global scale is a bit like that. It is Keynesianism for the rich countries and monetarism for the poor.

„Serenity is impossible to a poor man in a cold country“

—  George Orwell English author and journalist 1903 - 1950

Review of Hunger and Love by Lionel Britton, in The Adelphi (April 1931)
Contexto: To the well-fed it seems cowardly to complain of tight boots, because the well-fed live in a different world-a world where, if your boots are tight, you can change them; their minds are not warped by petty discomfort. But below a certain income the petty crowds the large out of existence; one's preoccupation is not with art or religion, but with bad food, hard beds, drudgery and the sack. Serenity is impossible to a poor man in a cold country and even his active thoughts will go in more or less sterile complaint.
