USAGOLD note:  Societe Generale’s Frederick Oudea makes a case for allowing creative destruction to do its work. I recall the quote from John Maynard Keynes (pictured) made late in life (1946):  “I find myself more and more relying for a solution of our problems on the invisible hand which I tried to eject from economic thinking twenty years ago.”
