  25. 25. Two Remarks on LMES
  26. 26. We believe in modeling “The arguments often heard that because of the humanelement, of the psychological factors etc., or because there is –allegedly- no measurement of important factors, mathematics will find no application, can all be dismissed as utterly mistaken. Almost all these objections have been made, or might have been made, many centuries ago in fields where mathematics is now the chief instrument of analysis.” Von Neumann and Morgenstern “Theory of Games and Economic Behavior”
