  1. Murphy’s recent “restrained” ripostes to critical comments on requisitioning private property for housing after the fire

    “Respectfully, don’t talk nonsense”
    “With respect, if you really think it’s this easy you are a fool”
    “Very politely, you are either a) calling [trolling?] b) unable to consider consequences c) blinded by dogma or d) all three”

  2. When I saw it I assumed it was about Murphy, and the “Eighth” at the start a brilliant parody.

    Not very accurate concerning Murphy, sadly. He’s ignorant of both micro and macroeconomics

  4. George S Gordon says:
    “…..Can you point to a country that understands macroeconomics, and provides evidence that MMT is correct?”

    “I think Caroline Lucas does

    Angus McNeil in the SNP does

    Few countries do yet, if any”
    What more evidence do we need.

    I am hoping that, post independence, he’ll convince the hawkeyes that their money can be created out of thin air, spend and then tax (in that order mind) and we will have a real life experiment into whether MMT really works in practice.

    If by chance you are currently employed in Scotland I wonder whether you can insist that your salary continues to be paid in £ sterling rather than £ stirling.

    We have yet to find a topic of any sort on which Murphy shows even the most basic understanding. This includes accounting in which he is nominally qualified. We have successfully observed no understanding of even the most basic points of

    Accounting, politics, philosophy, law, tax, any branch of economics, sociology, statistics, political economy, history.

    He is the very model of a modern Major Ignoramus. City University should hang their heads in shame.

  6. I confidently expect his ruminations on, inter alia, the Riemann Hypothesis and the unification of quantum mechanics and general relativity.
