NITUL’S REALLY LONG LIMERICK

Do y’all wanna hear (or read, in this case) a story? Well, let me tell you about my friend Ken Yun. He was born in Asia, but was brought up in Kenya. I was talking with Ken Yun, the Kenyan-Asian about a small (fictional, this isn’t a real story, ya know!) country known as Yunasia in the South-East Asia and he told me that the people living in Yunasia, ethnically known as the Yens, have managed to perfectly apply John Maynard Keyes’ ideas of economics in their economy.

He also told me about how he, Ken Yun, the Kenyan-Asian Keynesian had a grandfather, on his mother’s side, who was a Yen (the ethnicity in this case, not the Japanese currency) from Yunasia in South-East Asia.

NITUL’S REALLY LONG LIMERICK CONT’D

Ken Yun, the Kenyan-Asian-Yunasian Keynesian Yen, told me that he had lived in his maternal grandfather’s house which was called the Ye Sian Family home (after his maternal grandfather who bequeathed the house to his granddaughter). The house was on Ye boulevard in Ke prefecture of Nya city, the capital of Yunasia for the past 10 years. This automatically made him a citizen of Yunasia.

After conversing with him on multiple topics, I asked Ken Yun, the Kenyan-Asian-Yunasian Keynesian about his thoughts on the key to applying John Maynard Keynes’ economic ideas into society. So Ken Yun, the Kenyan-Asian-Yunasian Keynesian Yen from South-East Asia whose address was Ye Sian House in Ke, Nya told me that the key to Keynesian Economics is to influencing aggregate demand in the economy though activist stabilisation and economic intervention policies by the Government.
