Consejos de Rodrik para graduados (y para todos los científicos)

Creo que es difícil resumir mejor lo que debería ser el credo de cualquier científico. Una estupenda forma del volver al trabajo. Buen curso a todos.

  • Question the truth; but don’t give up the search for it. Be a skeptic, not a cynic. 
  • Seek wisdom; shun cleverness. It’s the first that will get you where you want to go. 
  • Learn from history and respect tradition. But use them to grow your imagination and expand the range of the feasible in the present and future. 
  • Be suspicious of conventional wisdom. By the time an idea becomes conventional wisdom, it is almost always wrong, because so many of the caveats and limitations have been shoved aside. 
  • Always ask for a second opinion. And never take what an economist says, about these or anything else, as the final word.
