Quote

"I would add one word for any student beginning economic study who may be discouraged by the severity of the effort which the study ... seems to require. The complicated analyses which economists endeavor to carry through are not mere gymnastics. They are instruments for the bettering of human life. The misery and squalor that surround us, the injurious luxury of some wealthy families, the terrible uncertainty overshadowing many families of the poorthese are evils too plain to be ignored. By the knowledge that our science seeks it is possible that [these evils] may be restrained ... To search for [that knowledge] is the task, to find it perhaps the prize, which the 'dismal science of Political Economy' offers to those who face its discipline."
Arthur C. Pigou (1928)
