What Keynes said about jobs of economists and everyone's futures
hippocratic oath and Job number 1 of the economics profession IS designing systems that unite the intergenerational race to end poverty
KEYNES (quotes from his books)
Economists and political mediators, both when they are right and when they are wrong, are more powerful than is commonly understood. Indeed the world is ruled by little else. Practical people, who believe themselves to be exempt from intellectual influence, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist. Madmen in authority who hear voices in the air are distilling their frenzy from some academic scribbler of a few years back. In the fields of economics and politics there are not many people who are influenced by new theories after they are 25 to 35 years of age, so the ideas that civil servants and politicians and even agitators apply are not likely to be the newest. Sooner or later it is ideas which are dangerous for good or evil (quoted from General Theory concluding paragraph)
If economists could manage to get themselves thought of as humble, competent people, on a level with dentists, that wold be splendid. Concluding paragraph of Essays in Persuasion
p526 Towards the turn of the millennium, developed nations will be threatened with the appalling problem of the able-bodied retired- there will be 100% more over 65 year olds than in the recent past
p523 The political problem of mankind is to combine tree things Economic Efficiency, Social Justice, and Individual Liberty. The first needs criticism , precaution and technical knowledge; the second an unselfish and enthusiastic spirit which loves the ordinary man; the third tolerance, breadth , appreciation of the excellences of variety and independence. (p523)

43rd year newsletters of Entrepreneurial Revolution started in The Economist 1972
what The Economist saw in 1972 as future challenges to 2025 if net generation was to be sustainable let alone productive and openly collaborative
after world war 2 most mass media organs decimated Keynsian logics (at a time when it could have been hugely relevant). The Economist was an exception thanks partly to my father being the last student tutored by Keynes at Cambridge.
When my father first saw students testing digital learning networks in 1972 he spent the next 10 years debating with leaders the priorities that Keynsains should prepare to invest in if the net generation was to be the most productive era
