Dumb Stuff I Think People Think III

This one I’ll just summarize in one word: “Keynesianism”.
The best and most accurate statement of which ever created, I don’t mind saying, is below:
UPDATE: Admittedly, it may be that the reason I think “Keynesianism” is so mind-blowingly stupid is that I just haven’t had it condescendingly explained enough times to me via simplistic, cartoonish metaphors by people whose perpetual background assumption is that they are orders of magnitude smarter than I am. Maybe if I just read one more Paul Krugman column or Matthew Yglesias blog post something will click in my head. I may never get the opportunity to test out this theory however; chronic, inexplicable nauseau upon trying to slog through a full Paul Krugman column or Matthew Yglesias blog post seems to prevent it. How tragic, for me.
