Could one send any more appropriate quote from a conference of economists here at Moskovskij Gosudarstvennyj Universitet?

Mathematics has the completely false reputation of yielding infallible

conclusions. Its infallibility is nothing but identity. Two times two

is not four, but it is just two times two, and that is what we call

four for short. But four is nothing new at all. And thus it goes on

and on in its conclusions, except that in the higher formulas the

identity fades out of sight.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
