Abstract [en]

This response to Reiss 'explanatory paradox' argues that some economic models might be true, and that many economic models are not intended for providing how-actually explanations, but rather how-possibly explanations. Therefore, two assumptions of Reiss' paradox are not true, and the paradox disappears.
