Why are you first-naming Robinson and last-naming everyone else? Her joke, by the way, was at Keynes’s expense.

I could write a personal attack on Marx for being academically irresponsible, ascribing positions to authors without any supporting textual evidence etc. But he didn’t do that. Peterson does. Constantly.

I don’t believe in ‘tyrannical central control of the economy’, and I don’t think Robinson did either, though that’s not relevant here. As an aside, I think the Cold War was largely a struggle between two sorts of command economy. I don’t approve of either sort: https://conatusnews.com/philosophy-economics-dr-alexander-douglas-part-five/
