The most valuable role of the economist is to ask the right questions to get people to understand the far-reaching consequences of their decisions and policies.
As Claude Frederic Bastiat wrote in 1849:
“Between a good and a bad economist this constitutes the whole difference — the one takes account of the visible effect; the other takes account both of the effects which are seen, and also of those which it is necessary to foresee.”
Konrad understands how to combine available data and narrative to show you those effects which are necessary to foresee.
