Of questionable relevance[edit]

Supply side economics was a theory developed in reaction to Keynesian economic which greatly contributed to Economic thought. You can develop a game with fixed rules with a Keynesian system, but , according to Ludwig von Mises, you certainly can't calculate how actual humans are going to act, or what satisfies them individually, and therefore economic planning is inefficient - the practical proof being in the comparison of the life of north and south Koreans or Hong Kongites and Cantonese.

I'm not really sure what value this paragraph brings to the article, nor do I like the fact that Von Mises -- who lived before Keynes -- is being quoted as an impartial source when the Austrian school is fringe at best in academic economics. EVDebs (talk) 02:35, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

Censorship[edit]

Why the information that Keynes was a pedophile is being censored? --User User Hawk (talk) 07:24, 14 December 2011 (UTC)

Could you show us a reference for it? Sam Tally-ho! 07:28, 14 December 2011 (UTC)
The only reference he provided was to Keynes at Harvard, which is a conspiracy-theoretic work and not a credible source. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 07:30, 14 December 2011 (UTC)
Google keynes pedophile and guess who comes up first? -- Nx / talk 07:31, 14 December 2011 (UTC)
This seems to be the most reliable source. Apparently he kept a detailed list of sex partners, and that included a 16 year old boy, therefore pedophile!!!1!! Pedophilia, btw, is defined as having a primary or exclusive sexual interest in prepubescent children. -- Nx / talk 07:43, 14 December 2011 (UTC)
