“In short both the things we feel we need and the things available for us to buy depend largely—beyond some point, almost entirely—on the things that others choose to buy.”
Robert H. Frank, Luxury Fever: Weighing the Cost of Excess

“They like the tax because they believe, correctly, that it will stimulate much needed savings and investment. But it’s an even better policy instrument than they think.”
Robert H. Frank, Success and Luck: Good Fortune and the Myth of Meritocracy

“Homo economicus would cheat only if he stood to benefit by enough and if the odds of being caught were sufficiently low. So the mere fact that he does not have a reputation for being a cheat tells us only that he’s been prudent.”
Robert H. Frank, Success and Luck: Good Fortune and the Myth of Meritocracy
