my favourite thing that i have learned all year at university is that there was a famous economist named keynes and he was only ever concerned with looking at economics in the short-term, as in short-term business cycles, short-term supply and demand fluctuations, etc etc etc.

and once someone said to him, ‘why do you only look at things in the short-term? why not look at things in the long run?’

and he said, ‘in the long run, we are all dead’.

and like that was his whole academic philosophy like

what a guy.
