If all organisations need cash reserves such that they should be in surplus on aggregate, then someone needs to run a deficit. If you want to reduce the deficit, then, your position is nearly equivalent to (i.e. factoring out other sector financial balances) wanting to cut the business sector’s cash surplus. Do you want to do this? The Pedant-General December 1, 2010 at 10:55 pm Vimothy, The two posts referenced are not from different decades, or years, not even months or day. Ritchie is here arguing contradictory positions ON THE SAME DAY. Tim here is not under any obligation to do anything at all when you have stupidity to this epic degree on Ritchie’s part. vimothy December 2, 2010 at 2:00 am Pendant-General, At best that’s just an argument tu quoque. Bit childish too. Scanning the two-posts quickly, it’s not even clear how contradictory they are. One post says that organisations need cash reserves. The other says that the govt will have to run a deficit if organisations want to hold (net) cash reserves. Uh, ok. I think I can see a way to square this particular circle… pete December 2, 2010 at 10:41 am “Today’s question: does he actually read his own blog?” Probably not. Who’d want to read that tedious load of shite? David Gillies December 3, 2010 at 7:35 am I like the way he bandies about ‘propensity to spend’ as if he had any idea what it meant.
