Quote of the Day: Stiglitz Edition

"When I was in the lawyer- and politician-dominated White House environment, I often felt that I had arrived in another world," [Stiglitz] recounted. "I had expected lower standards of evidence for assertions than would be expected in a professional article, but I had not expected that the evidence offered would be, in so many instances, so irrelevant, and that so many vacuous sentences, sentences whose meaning and import simply baffled me, would be uttered."
From this old profile of Joe Stiglitz. (HT: Marginal Revolution)
