The Art of Writing, the Science of Economics

Thought for the Day…

“Markets do not inevitably self-correct and we cannot always rely on enlightened self-interest to provide economic prosperity. Markets may require ‘adult supervision.’ The insights of our discipline were oversold by those pursuing their own objectives; qualifications and cautionary statements were ignored.” —Economists William Connor and Takahiro Miyao, in a letter to The Economist, August 8, 2009
