Dinsdag quote

Economists’ proclivity to look at outcomes rather than at the rules that generate such outcomes has been a source of profound confusion. Reform of results or outcomes comes about through reform of the rules rather than through manipulation of the outcomes directly.

Geoffrey Brennan & James Buchanan (1986). The Reason of Rules: Constitutional Political Economy, p 16-17
