Keynes ja hambaarst
He said, “Well, he has trouble with teeth and continuously failed to fix them. I looked at him and I [the dentist] said, ‘Lord Keynes, I think we’d better take this tooth out. It should be extracted. It’s causing you trouble.’ And Keynes said, “No.”
He said, “Well, Lord Keynes, really, it’s infected. It’s a bad abscess, and I would advise you to have it out.”
And Keynes said, “No, please drain it, I will have it taken care of when I get back to London.”
Said the dentist, “I told Lord Keynes, ‘You let that tooth go and in six weeks you’ll be dead.’ “
And, by golly, in six weeks he was dead.
