That paragraph about Gwynedd's tactics made me think of this scene in Good Will Hunting:
Gwynedd being the paraphraser that gets outed by Matt Damon (starts at the 1:14 mark).

What a great clip -- it just about summarizes this thread, including my own nonsense. Thanks for posting!

Really then why is it that I was the one who took his out of context paraphrasing and cited the source while citing my sources? He has no sources. What you are is the paraphraser's drinking buddy. How do you like them apples?

Oh interesting, I never met an alchemist. If you increase the demand for gold, other than digging more up of the fixed supply, how much more do you get?

I recall the bus tour I took in San Fransisco, and he said you don't build without tearing down so given the fixed amount of space; what is the net total of new ground space?

Why even arrest counterfeits. Its money and we don't do zero sum games. Why arrest bank robbers? We don't believe in any of that zero sum crap.

Why would I do that since he was quite clearly flawed in a few areas. What I find so amusing is how you keep butchering his theories. We never even got around to his theory. You keep garbling the facts and historical references and interlard them with person comments since you are quite so clearly injured. I believe its because you fancy yourself the alpha intellect of your world. Its nothing new. You just keep babbling about something you know nothing about after you unceremoniously dismissed it.

I'd take great credit except for how simple the formula is. Speak about things where you have even a fundamental understanding. If you want to have an opinion on an author, try reading an essay or a book of theirs.
