Exchequer

NRO’s eye on debt and deficits . . . by Kevin D. Williamson.

Shakespeare on the 2010 Elections



Text  



I saw a performance of Richard II over the weekend. With the commoners hostile to the spendthrift king, the nobles lay out their complaints against him, including this line, in which his prodigal ways are compared to those of his predecessors:

More hath he spent in peace than they in wars.

Shakespeare: always relevant.
