ECONOMÍA Y CIENCIA

Creer que la economía es una ciencia en el sentido moderno del termino, donde no influyen la ambición humana, la codicia y la avaricia (en fin, la subjetividad), es tan estúpido como pensar que El jugador de Dostoievsky no es una novela, sino un tratado matemático para aprender a ganar en la ruleta.

(Consultar aquí la reflexión de storia al respecto).

I brought snapshots to show you so I could get your money. I can't do it; I can't take it. 'Cause if I take the money I'm lost. I'll just be a… rich ambulance chaser. I can't do it.

No creo que sobren nunca, ni tus aportaciones y las sabias palabras de Paul Newman (a quién ya estoy echando en falta visto como está el mundo, y eso, por sí sólo, daría sentido a tu comentario en esta entrada).

Un saludo y gracias.

No he leído El jugador...pero algo diré.
Sí que influyen la avaricia y todos los individualismos, creo incluso que forman parte del marco. Un marco que se agarra con manos de personas con nombre y apellido y que, cuando se quiere, se sacude, se tuerza, se puede incluso pintar de colores distintos, y que, por muchas sombras que se pongan, al final, algún reflejo nos llega. Leer el reflejo eso ya es más difícil porque en este ámbito soy bastante analfabeta...

Saludos,
