The Warfare State Rules the US . . .

Keynesian Myths, Monetary Central Planning and The Triumph of The Warfare State

By the late 1970s, moreover, Washington had become so mesmerized by the Keynesian predicate—that is, the notion that the state must constantly maneuver to levitate the GDP—that it didn’t even know that American prosperity did not depend on carrier battle groups cruising the straits of Hormuz or alliances with despots.
