An Honest Comment

All Posts No Comments

From Daniel Usher’s comments on a paper by Kenneth Arrow (both contained in the 1982 Resources for the Future collection, Discounting for Time and Risk in Energy Policy):

“I should confess at once that I do not follow Arrow’s mathematics in detail. Though I think I understand what Arrow is doing, I cannot check his computations and would not be able to spot a mistake; I take it on faith that Arrow’s conclusions follow from him premises.”

The rest of his Comment was pretty good, too.
