Washington's Blog [1].

I've written two essays attempting to disprove "military Keynesianism" - the idea that military spending is the best stimulus. See [2] and [3].

In response, a reader challenged me to prove that anyone would advocate military spending or war as a fiscal stimulus.

In fact, the concept of military Keynesianism is so widespread that there are some half million [4] web pages discussing the topic.

And many leading economists and political pundits sing its praises.

The Telegraph, UK

With these immortal words, Winston Churchill reacted to the Allied Forces' victory at the Second Battle of El Alamein. Despite widespread celebration, Britain's great wartime leader issued a warning to his fellow citizens and the world.

General Rommel – the highly-feared Desert Fox – had been humiliated. His mighty Panzerarmee Afrika was in retreat. The Axis Powers would eventually be pushed westwards from Egypt, across Libya and all the way to Tunisia. By dashing Hitler's hopes of securing the Suez Canal, and control of Middle Eastern oil reserves, the Allies had placed their thumb on the energy jugular of the Nazi war machine, changing the course of the Second World War.

Last week the price of gold rose to $1,100, the highest ever recorded. Gold is still an important measure of the world economy. The theory of the 19th-century gold standard was that gold was “real money” in the same way as landed property was “real estate”. All types of paper money are capable of being created by banks or governments, so the supply is potentially unlimited. It was observed that gold holds its purchasing power over centuries, whereas paper money tends to depreciate towards the value of zero.
