It doesn't take much more in life than spring and friends, does it?
#13 – Present photography meets future economics
P: I stayed at a vacation home with friends over the weekend. It doesn't take much more in life than spring and friends, does it?
E: If you say so, photographer.
P: You should know, economist, your profession knows how to maximize well-being, right?
E: Hardly. Economics measures indicators of wealth. Such as the change in gross domestic product. Or how many products a country sells abroad. This, by the way, doesn't mean that living in a holiday home for a few days without having to earn money during this time isn't a form of wealth.
P: But how does economics measure doing nothing, devoting oneself to idleness?
E: Economics doesn't measure that.
P: I like flying under the radar of economists.
E: If it increases your well-being, fine with me.
P: Then, for once, we're in agreement, economist.
E: For once.
