All economists care about is money

"The love of money as a possession -as distinguished from the love of money as a means to the enjoyments and realities of life -will be recognised for what it is, a somewhat disgusting morbidity, one of those semi-criminal, semi-pathological propensities which one hands over with a shudder to the specialists in mental disease. ... the love of money is detestable"
JM Keynes, writing in 1930 about what the world might be like in 2030.
