Quote by the head of the laboratory: It is important to understand that a scientist do not sell a ready-made results. Intuition plays a major role in economics. There are no universal models, we need to take a number of nuances into account, and ideas arise on the basis of knowledge and contradictions. This is what is important to develop, first of all, in students and young researchers. Many universities in the world lack that.
