Keynes/Bernanke, by Paul Krugman, in NY Times:
John Maynard Keynes:
But this long run is a misleading guide to current affairs. In the long run we are all dead. Economists set themselves too easy, too useless a task if in tempestuous seasons they can only tell us that when the storm is long past the ocean is flat again.
These are tempestuous times, but when the storm is long past the ocean will be flat again.
OK, not a literal quote, but pretty much what he said.
