D’ye think Ritchie realises he’s channelling Friedman?January 23, 2018 Tim WorstallRagging on Ritchie11 CommentsFor he’s talking about the quantity of money and all that, isn’t he? All of that really being Friedman? previousOh joynextOh my, how amusing 11 thoughts on “D’ye think Ritchie realises he’s channelling Friedman?” Dennis the Peasant January 23, 2018 at 2:12 pm The real question is whether he knows who Friedman is. Surreptitious Evil January 23, 2018 at 2:28 pm Time for a new category? “Timmy’s questions that we know the answer to”? Arthur the Cat January 23, 2018 at 3:02 pm @Surreptitious Evil Surely it’s a special case of Betteridge’s law of headlines? Henry Crun January 23, 2018 at 3:08 pm The only Friedman Dick Tater is likely channeling is Thomas Friedman. BraveFart January 23, 2018 at 3:47 pm Wortstall: “D’ye think Ritchie realises he’s channelling Friedman?” Murphy: “I’m pleased that the world has come round to my view: it’s taken them a while to do so.” RichardT January 23, 2018 at 3:47 pm No, because Murphy is so ignorant of economics that he has no conception that other people have thought of his ideas before (and, often, having thought of them, rejected them for good reasons). To him, like a child in fairyland, everything is new and exciting. Surreptitious Evil January 23, 2018 at 5:18 pm Arthur, Indeed. However, Tim already has series for the Guardian and the Observer. Rob January 23, 2018 at 8:30 pm I expect that once someone makes the Tuber aware of who Friedman is, he’ll claim Friedman stole his ideas.

RichardT January 23, 2018 at 11:14 pm Diogenes said: “How long can the barrel of his brain withstand the scraping?” I thought Murphy’s thoughts came out of a different barrel. Ironman January 24, 2018 at 1:09 pm In answer to your question Tim: no he doesn’t. He seriously believes monetarism is only about not expanding the money supply. I’d like to say something witty about that, but it’s just plain pitiful. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
