The ideas of economists and political philosophers, both when they are right and when they are wrong, are more powerful than commonly understood. Indeed the world is governed by little else. Practical men, who believe themselves exempt from any intellectual influence, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist. (John Maynard Keynes)
