Abstract

Three scientists are stranded on an uninhabited island. They do not have any food and they cannot return to the world of civilization. The engineer indicates that she is helpless: there are no tools available to build a boat. The political scientist is at a loss: she is not powerful enough to goad any others into action. The economist, however, cries out that he has the answer: let us assume we have the power to make the right equipment arrive, wouldn’t the problem be solved?
