Abstract

Magicians use sleight-of-hand to create intriguing illusions, but they are not the only ones who practice that trade. Economists and business spokespeople also create fantasies by diverting attention from what is important. The difference is that magicians deceive only their audience, while these other illusionists deceive themselves as well.
