Dear Folks,

J. M. Keynes said somewhere that common sense often turns out, on
inspection, to be the ideas of some discredited economist -- or words to
that effect.

Do any of this august company know (a) Keynes's precise wording, and (b)
where he said this? (Yes, I know he probably said it in bed, which he
never left before noon and where he did most of his work.)
