Hugo Salinas Price: The Semmelweis reflex


11:30a ET Saturday, September 28, 2019

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Hugo Salinas Price, president of the Mexican Civic Association for Silver, yesterday offered a medical analogy for the refusal of governments, central banks, economists, and others to acknowledge the damage being done to the world by the creation of infinite money. That is, they are all too invested in a system that serves them well but abuses the world, and too arrogant to admit their mistake.

The analogy cited by Salinas Price is "the Semmelweis Reflex," named after the experience of a Ignaz Semmelweis, a Hungarian doctor who discovered that the failure to follow antiseptic procedures in hospitals was the primary cause of the death of women after childbirth. His colleagues, consumed by arrogance, could not believe it and were offended by his clamoring that they simply should wash their hands.
