Quotes:

“Societies are not merely statistical aggregations”

Societies are not merely statistical aggregations of individuals engaged in voluntary exchange but something much more subtle and complicated. A group or community cannot be understood if the unit of analysis is the individual taken by himself. A society is clearly something greater than the sum of its parts.

Lester Thurow, 1983

From the book Dangerous Currents
