Keynes Dying Words!
It's amazing that so few people have ever heard the last words of John Maynard Keynes. If they did, their would not be a world of debt today, but a world far closer to the Austrian School of Economics. According to the story, Keynes lay dying when he told his nurse he saw the light of truth, that his mind finally connected all the dots and he told her to tell the world these final words (which she never did, because she didn't know what he was talking about).
He said, with his last breath: "I'm was never an economist, rather an optimist."
