"The truth may be puzzling. It may take some work to grapple with. It may be counterintuitive. It may contradict deeply held prejudices. It may not be consonant with what we desperately want to be true. But our preferences do not determine what's true." Carl Sagan

“The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.” Stephen Hawking

Why should scientists care about economics? Economics is about much more than just efficiently making and selling products. Economic thinking is, like the scientific method, a powerful tool for understanding the world around us. Beyond that, the market is a tool that creates and communicates vast amounts of knowledge throughout the world. Understanding the market process not only allows us to expand our knowledge of the world, but also helps us better promote the causes of science and technology.
