(Remember, we don’t beg on this blog, we ask.)
In a recent EconLog post, Bryan Caplan quotes from Friedman’s book *Hidden Order*:
Economists are often accused of believing that everything –
health, happiness, life itself – can be measured in money.
What we actually believe is even odder. We believe that
everything can be measured in anything.
–David Friedman, Hidden Order
Can somebody please provide me with more of the context surrounding this quote? I have the book, somewhere, but I just moved and it would be equivalent to one-eighth of a murder for me to find it right now. (Read Caplan’s post if that seems like an odd statement.)
