Blame It On The Boogie!

Blame It On The Boogie!

  • Whenever there is an inconvenience or a problem, we instinctively seek a guilty party, a person or collective that can be blamed for the ordeal.
  • This is a very human impulse to assign culprits to things that go wrong.
  • When the economy is sluggish, it’s always due to bad policies and the bad people who make them, rather than hideously complex market interactions that even economists don’t understand.
  • When the local football team has a disappointing season, it’s the failure of the coach, or the quarterback, or the management, or a lack of fan support.
