So here we are with the 117th carnival of debt reduction. I’d like to take this opportunity to deepen your knowledge of famous Brits.
budgeting and finance with John Maynard Keynes
John Maynard Keynes (1883-1946) developed a school of macroeconomics now called Keynesian economics.
He advocated government intervention to reduce the effects of recessions and depressions in the economy and was the leader of the British delegation to the 1944 Bretton Woods conference which established the World Bank and the IMF.
In the long run we are all dead.

philosophical musings with Francis Bacon
Francis Bacon (1561-1626) was an English philosopher who started the development of the modern scientific method.
A number of conspiracy theories revolve around Bacon, including speculation that he was the illegitimate son of Elizabeth I, and also that he authored some of the plays generally attributed to Shakespeare.
a little philosophy inclineth man’s mind to atheism; but depth in philosophy bringeth men’s minds about to religion

cars with Stirling Moss
Stirling Moss (1929-), is a retired racing car driver who is often cited as the best driver never to win the world championships.
An inveterate Formula 1 driver, who came 2nd in 1958 to fellow Brit, Mike Hawthorn, he also won the 1,000km Nuremberg ring race three years in succession.
It is necessary to relax your muscles when you can. Relaxing your brain is fatal.

credit cards with Beau Brummell
Beau Brummell (1778-1840) was a leading light in the dandified circles of the Regency, and a celebrated bankrupt.
He fled to France in 1816 after a demand to pay back his debts which amounted to several thousand pounds. His influence on male fashion has been long-lasting; he popularised trousers and ties.
If people turn to look at you on the street, you are not well dressed.
