Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York confused the names of two famous economists on Friday. In fact, she inadvertently called out an infamous UK town. In her Instagram story the congresswoman set out a prediction about the US economy she said was made by "Milton Keynes." It was actually made by John Maynard Keynes. A humiliated Ocasio-Cortez tried to pass off the blunder as an honest mistake. She confused him with Milton Friedman, the American free-market economist. However, the internet has been mocking her mercilessly ever since. According to Business Insider, Milton Keynes is the name of a town 50 miles north of London.
