I have heard many economists are frustrated in delivering their messages. Not that people can not follow the logic, but because economists are bad explainers. I usually tell my collegueas: "Don't blame those who don't understand you. Blame yourself who fail to explain". That advice applies to ... me, too.
And this one case is special. My very own wife is "attacking" me. To avoid endless debate -- see, I am a bad explainer -- I suggests her instead to read my regular columns in this magazine.
