  • Man I love this guy. It’s tempting as an economist to want to do everything that you find interesting, which is difficult since each new thing requires substantial fixed costs. And if you want to be productive over the longrun, it’s sensible therefore to incur as few of those fixed costs as you can and then focus on building from them where the cost isn’t requiring you learn an entirely new method, literature, etc. But whenever I see or read anything by Ariely, I wish I could be involved in projects like his.
