Frasi Paul Samuelson

„La storia ha dimostrato che i capitalisti vanno carichi di ottimismo anche al loro funerale.“

— Paul Samuelson
dall'intervista a L'espresso n. 17 anno LIII del 3 maggio 2007, p. 176

„Good questions outrank easy answers.“

— Paul A. Samuelson
Context: The recent market run-up that appreciated run-of-the- mill shares also chanced to send up those token gold holdings. Pure luck, undeserved and unlikely to reoccur. Good questions outrank easy answers. In: Paul Anthony Samuelson, ‎Kate Crowley (1986), The Collected Scientific Papers, Volume 5, p. 561

„There is really nothing more pathetic than to have an economist or a retired engineer try to force analogies between the concepts of physics and the concepts of economics.“

— Paul A. Samuelson
Context: There is really nothing more pathetic than to have an economist or a retired engineer try to force analogies between the concepts of physics and the concepts of economics. How many dreary papers have I had to referee in which the author is looking for something that corresponds to entropy or to one or another form of energy. Nonsensical laws, such as the law of conservation of purchasing power, represent spurious social science imitations of the important physical law of the conservation of energy; and when an economist makes reference to a Heisenberg Principle of indeterminacy in the social world, at best this must be regarded as a figure of speech or a play on words, rather than a valid application of the relations of quantum mechanics. p. 69

„I can claim that in talking about modern economics I am talking about me. My finger has been in every pie.“

— Paul A. Samuelson
Context: I can claim that in talking about modern economics I am talking about me. My finger has been in every pie. I once claimed to be the last generalist in economics, writing about and teaching such diverse subjects as international trade and econometrics, economic theory and business cycles, demography and labor economics, finance and monopolistic competition, history of doctrines and locational economics. February 1985, in William Breit and Roger W. Spencer (ed.) Lives of the laureates

„Modigliani's theory was a powerful searchlight on what was happening... It is the best explanation of what has actually been happening in the great swing of American life since the 1950's.“

— Paul A. Samuelson
Paul Samuelson in: . "[http://www.nytimes.com/2003/09/26/obituaries/26MODI.html Franco Modigliani, 85, Nobel-Winning Economist, Dies]" in New York Times, September 26, 2003.
