Why economists don\’t write movie scripts

If you’re on Team Edward, you might think the fundamental transformation in Twilight: Breaking Dawn is a person getting turned into a vampire. Or if you’re on Team Jacob, you might think it’s a boy morphing into a wolf. But if you’re an economist, it’s the conversion of undifferentiated assets into relationship-specific assets.

Although, umm, this specific economist is in fact writing TV scripts.

  1. Have you seen the writing of an economist? Long wandering sentences clogging monstrous paragraphs filled with obscure and confusing terms. A total lack of ability to explain things in simple declarative statements.

    Economists don’t write movie scripts because they can’t write. Period.
