Wisdom from Partha

“As economics matters to us (economists), we also have views on what should be done to put things right when we feel they are wrong. And we hold our views strongly because our ethics drive our politics and our politics inform our economics. …

…(But) I realized that economics had increasingly driven my ethics and that my ethics in turn had informed my politics.”

- Sir Partha Dasgupta,

in Economics: A Very Short Introduction

He is inspirational; both intellectually and philosophically.
