LETTER:Accounting for love

From Mr Mervyn Jones

Sir: Have we been wrong all this time in thinking of economics as a dull, unemotional sphere of human activity? Some of the great romancers and remarriers of our time - Tony Crosland, Nigel Lawson, Douglas Jay, Peter Jay and now Rupert Pennant-Rea - have been outstanding in that sphere. Perhaps the link is to be found in impulsiveness and passion. This might explain why even the pound cannot achieve stability.
