"I often annoy other economists by giving advice. 'Economists are supposed to describe behavior, not change it,' they insist. But they couldn't be more wrong. Economics is inherently advisory. Anytime an economist notices a discrepancy between (a) the world as it is, and (b) the world as people believe it to be, economics implies advice." (07/05/11)
