"When I taught maths and physics at MIT, I forbade my students the use of a calculator. Why? Because a numerical answer is beside the point. One must learn the concepts of how to model and approach a problem to understand these fields.Once this knowledge is solid, then comes a consideration of how and when to apply it."

"What does the new package of financial goodies amount to? The printing of trillions more in paper liabilities to purchase existing paper liabilities - debt that will never be honoured; 'money' that has never been within a mile of real productivity.
