BREAKING NEWS: Niall Ferguson Remains A Horrible Piece Of Shit

His speaking fee is more expensive than your Honda

Looks like the Daily Tina’s week of self-immolation is continuing into the weekend:

Harvard Professor and author Niall Ferguson says John Maynard Keynes’ economic philosophy was flawed and he didn’t care about future generations because he was gay and didn’t have children.

….

Ferguson asked the audience how many children Keynes had. He explained that Keynes had none because he was a homosexual and was married to a ballerina, with whom he likely talked of “poetry” rather than procreated. The audience went quiet at the remark. Some attendees later said they found the remarks offensive.

….

Ferguson, who is the Laurence A. Tisch Professor of History at Harvard University, and author of The Great Degeneration: How Institutions Decay and Economies Die, says it’s only logical that Keynes would take this selfish worldview because he was an “effete” member of society. Apparently, in Ferguson’s world, if you are gay or childless, you cannot care about future generations nor society.

Good to know that the stodgy defender of American Imperialism has moved on to plagiarizing new and uniquely awful scholars, like Scott Lively.
