So let's have another of my periodic John Maynard Keynes posts, for the benefit of those readers in government. This portrait of Keynes, he of sound economic sense, is by Duncan Grant, and is at Charleston. Says the ArtFund website of the portrait:

...painted at Charleston during the First World War where Keynes is reputed to be drafting a crucial telegram negotiating an American loan to secure Britain's wartime survival.

Nearly time for another one John!

Update - a reader writes:

Re your Keynes posting: right on....until you exhort him as 'John': he hated to be called John, always was called Maynard!
