The day is not far off when the economic problem will take the back seat where it belongs, and the arena of the heart and the head will be occupied or reoccupied, by our real problems – the problems of life and of human relations, of creation and behavior and religion.
John Maynard Keynes

Hannah Arendt
In economics, the majority is always wrong.

Milton Friedman
Economic progress, in capitalist society, means turmoil.
