Book Review: Grand Pursuit: The Story of Economic Genius

 

Abstract: Reading Nasar’s Grand Pursuit: The Story of Economic Genius reminds me of a
dialogue I had with a Nigerian medical student when I arrived in Poland in the
early 1970s to study economics. He told me that I made a wrong choice by
coming to Poland to study economics, because ‘you cannot do anything
meaningful with economics and economists always argue among themselves.’ I disagreed and reminded him of the Polish proverb: Dla chacego nie ma nic
trudnego, which literally means, ‘for those who want, there is nothing difficult,’ or ‘where there is a will, there is always a way.’ After almost 40 years, I have proved the medical student wrong because of my will to succeed in life as an economist.
