Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Samuelson is also on record as describing how a Canadian Keynesian economist who published a well received textbook in 1946 subsequently was the victim of a coordinated conservative smear that linked him and his views to, gasp, SOCIALISM. The spectacle caused Samuelson to be very careful not to be vulnerable to such an attack. He did not say so but, likely, this effort to avoid attack by conservatives substantially drove him into their arms. Samuelson knew on which side his bread was buttered.
