"There's also the Keynesian view, where while saving (and hence lending) may be virtuous for the individual, especially if they have dependents, it's harmful for the wider economy. An extreme version sees excess savers as sucking the life out of the economy, while debtors are heroically taking risk onto themselves, which raises demand for the benefit of all."
By Adam Bartlett on What St Luke would say to Schäuble



"Everything we do in security is the equivalent of the dutch boy with his finger in the dyke, and leaks are springing up everywhere."
