Joan Robinson Quote

“The purpose of studying economics is not to acquire a set of ready-made answers to economic questions, but to learn how to avoid being deceived by economists.”

Too funny, too true, too often. In the vain given, absolutely - the 5 stars is for that narrow scope.

Absolutely true.

Bob Leavitt, Charlotte, VT

A recently retired ( and much-too quickly dead ) minister, confronted with disputation re: choice of two hymnals ( the old .. and the new ) at one time had suggested to the congregation that maybe instead of "either/or" we might consider "both/and." BOTH hymnals are now in the pews and we are "twice-blest," given the choice ! Re: Ms. Robinson's "either/or," may I raise the question as to whether or not the "studying" might serve two functions: "both/and" ?
