Brad DeLong — THE MUST-READ OF MUST-READS on the links between behavioral finance and macro

THE MUST-READ OF MUST-READS on the links between behavioral finance and macro: John Maynard Keynes (1936): The State of Long-Term Expectation: The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money: Chapter 12: "If I may be allowed to appropriate the term _speculation for the activity of forecasting the psychology of the market, and the term enterprise for the activity of forecasting the prospective yield of assets over their whole life, it is by no means always the case that speculation predominates over enterprise.

1. Keynes was friends with Hayek. There is no mention of Austrian concepts or analysis in TGT which would completely refute Keynesian analysis in the cradle. Keynes was a fraud and a fraidy cat. Like all Keynesians.

No it wouldn't since citizens would STILL not have access to inherently risk-free fiat accounts at either the Central Bank or Treasury and would thus be forced to use private bank deposits or else be limited to unsafe, totally inadequate for modern commerce physical fiat.

So Bob, should citizens be allowed to use their Nations' fiat in inherently-safe form via accounts at the Treasury (since you would end Central Banks)?

Yes or No, Bob.
