Goodreads asked Simon Constable:

How do you get inspired to write?

Simon Constable Sometimes I hear someone ask a question about something and then I want to check out the answer. In other words, I want to learn something and then share the new knowledge.

Other times I need to straighten people out who have misconceptions about the world in which we live. This part is particularly relevant to economics, where some really dumb ideas get flaunted around as if they make sense when they don't.
