    This is a very interesting video. The extent use of mathematics in economics have convinced economists that they can design the economy the way they wanted. This arrogant behavior was called Ivris (Hubris) in ancient Greek tragedies and it leads to Nemesis. Hayek, here, indicates that this extent use of mathematics and aggregate equations hide the motivations of individuals.
