economic theory mathematically, I didn’t know what I was doing. I came to the
position that mathematical analysis is not one of many ways of doing economic
theory: It is the only way. Economic theory is mathematical analysis.
Everything else is just pictures and talk.”
Robert Lucas Jr. The Economist "The sciences do not try to explain, they
hardly even try to interpret, they mainly make models. By a model is meant a
mathematical construct, Aswhich with the addition of certain verbal
interpretations, describes observed phenomena. The justification of such a
mathematical construct is solely and precisely that it is expected to
work."
John von Neumann The Mathematician
Best Prediction of the Interest Rate ever, by Tom Sargent
