Isn't the story that Keynes purchased the collected works of Newton, and
thereby discovered Newton's lifelong mysticism and interest in subjects
that we would today regard as kookery? If so, Keynes did us all a great
service. Of course by giving governments permission to endlessly spend
money they don't have, Keynes did us all a disservice. So it sort of
balances out.
