Jacques Attali

Jacques Attali

is a French economist and scholar. From 1981 to 1991, he was an advisor to President François Mitterrand.
François Mitterrand was the last king of France. France today is no longer a truly independent nation, but not yet part of a global European nation. We're in a no man's land. There is a longing for a monarch and a request for a stronger president.More Jacques Attali quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
For twenty-five centuries, Western knowledge has tried to look upon the world. It has failed to understand that the world is not for the beholding. It is for hearing. It is not legible, but audible. Our science has always desired to monitor, measure, abstract, and castrate meaning, forgetting that life is full of noise and that death alone is silent: work noise, noise of man, and noise of beast. Noise bought, sold, or prohibited. Nothing essential happens in the absence of noise.More Jacques Attali quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
