"Few human acts are so difficult as to say mea culpa, to face facts when they conflict with long-held philosophical views. People will do so only when they suffer severe personal injury if they persist in error. That is why businessmen, who may be bankrupted if they refuse to face facts, are one of the few groups that develop the habit of doing so."

Milton Friedman’s Preface to William Simon A Time for Truth p. xiii.
