Biznesmen z XVIII w.

Paul Krugman tłumaczy, że esej, który wzbudził tak wielką dyskusję, nie był atakiem na matematykę w ekonomii.

What I objected to in the mag article was the tendency to identify good math with good work. CAPM is a beautiful model; that doesn’t mean it’s right. The math of real business cycle models is much more elegant than that of New Keynesian models, let alone the kind of models that make room for crises like the one we’re in; that makes RBC models seductive, but it doesn’t make them any less silly.

Mike Perry przypomina o Samuelu Johnsonie, brytyjskim pisarzu i „biznesmenie” z XVIII w. z okazji 300. rocznicy urodzin.
