Leithner Letter No. 62
26 February, 2005

I read with interest everything that your old comrade [John Meynard] Keynes writes; but I find myself stubbornly refusing to believe that he can work any such miracle as he has in mind by a managed inflation of the currency. The world which has been defying all the economic laws for twenty years – indulging in war and all that derives from it, economic war and all the follies that go with it – cannot escape punishment by monkeying with the currency. We are getting what we jolly well deserve; and the nations will have to repent and do penance before the conditions will be righted.
