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.

However, sometimes the narratives shaping the prices of assets on the financial markets are false, says Wojciech Stępień, an economist at BNP Paribas.

“After Brexit, the United Kingdom is building trade links and developing its own competences in many modern sectors of the economy. This can be seen on the example of biotechnology and pharmacy – the United Kingdom has efficiently implemented its own coronavirus vaccine and is now one of the leaders in terms of vaccination,” says Dr Przemysław Biskup from the Polish Institute of International Affairs (PISM).
