"If we are like mice, we may be walking around with our mothers' thinking and our fathers' moods (to the extend that thoughts and moods are inherited at all)."
Quote from Matt Ridley's "Genome" (p 215).

"You have heard economists say that they are puzzled by the nature of today's problem: they are unable to understand why inflation is accompanied by recession - which is contrary to their Keynesian doctrines; and they have coined a ridiculous name for it: 'stagflation.'

"They ignore the fact that money can function only so long as it represents actual goods - and that at a certain stage of inflating the money supply, the government begins to consume a nation's investment capital, thus making production impossible."
Quote from Ayn Rand's "For the New Intellectual", 1974 (in the paperback edition 1982, chapter entitled "Egalitarianism and Inflation", p134)
