Kenyan or Keynesian? (letter)


by Frank Bellet

News Weekly, December 11, 2010
Sir,

Two of a number of debates surrounding the presidency of Barack Obama have included those economic policies, often described as those of Cambridge economist John Maynard Keynes. To a lesser extent, others argue that Obama's presidency is invalid because, as they claim, "he wasn't born in America, but in Kenya".

In a series of interviews among a dozen Obama supporters, seen on US television recently, some interesting responses emerged.

Referring to his economic policies, they were asked if they thought Obama was a Keynesian. All but one replied, somewhat angrily: "No, I believe he was born in Hawaii."

The one exception, obviously aware of the meaning of the word Keynesian, nevertheless said he had no idea of what Obama's economic policies were.

Frank Bellet,
Petrie, Qld
