“how little he knows the world”

A good quote via Krugman from the Treasure of the Sierra Madre:

Anyone who is willing to work and is serious about it will certainly find a job. Only you must not go to the man who tells you this, for he has no job to offer and doesn’t know anyone who knows of a vacancy. This is exactly the reason why he gives you such generous advice, out of brotherly love, and to demonstrate how little he knows the world.

Anecdotal of course, and fictional at that, however says it all about those who claim not having a job is always a character issue.
