One participant dismissed discussion based on the scale of our current crisis that suggested it was similar to that Keynes faced in the 1930s, saying there is no comparison. His point was that the 1930s were much worse than now.
I begged to differ. I said that was completely wrong. And I stand by that. The 1930s might have been grim, but we now face an existential crisis of the sort most could not have imagined, and I am sure Keynes did not, in the 1930s.
