Aphorism of the Day

"If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough."

-by Albert Einstein (March 14, 1879 – April 18, 1955). [from websophia.]


  • Just to be contrary, I'll offer this:
    "If I could explain it to the average person, it wouldn't have been worth the Nobel Prize."-Richard Feynman.

    What a great blog. I envy economists. I got a PhD in Chemistry, and I am jealous that you guys get to think about everything (noting your post on academic imperialism). Well, not being an economist doesn't stop me, but I fear chemists lack the gravitas or something to appear authoritative about so many things...
