Thoughts from alum Miguel Ángel Santos: "What's an economist good for?"
Es una pregunta legítima. Tanto para quienes están pensando, están ahora o alguna vez estudiaron economía (¿qué se puede hacer con todos esos conocimientos?) como para quienes consumen lo que producen los economistas (¿en qué se puede creer?).

I liked Steve Williamson's post on gaps and triangles. But I think about it a bit differently. Start with basic micro. There's a Marginal Benefit curve and a Marginal Cost curve, and the optimum quantity is where the two curves cross. That's what we get in a competitive market with no externalities or other market failures. Now suppose something prevents the market reaching that optimal quantity.
