So you're asking if I've ever been about to do something stupid, realized it was stupid but did it anyway, got somehow punished for my stupidity and then thought that I must have magical powers because I recognized the inherent stupidity of the action I nevertheless went ahead and did?
“It is a strange paradox that today’s central banks are generally staffed by economists, who by and large profess a belief in a theory which says that their jobs are, at the best, unnecessary, and more likely wealth-destroying. Needless to say, this is not a point widely discussed among respectable economists. Nevertheless, it is an issue worth pondering.”
George Cooper, The Origin of Economic Crises
