Sorry for gooding the critical comments, I just can't believe that they are not meant ironically!

No. An efficient outcome != maximizing monetary welfare. If Terrence gets nonpecuniary benefits from doing math instead of making money the outcome is still efficient.
I mean, we all nogooded OP because we understand utility. But don't our welfare theorems basically use OP's logic?

It's a mystery to me why people think you can compare a mathematician to a rich entrepreneur. They are different things. The entrepreneur could never come up with a seminal mathematical idea while the mathematician would unlikely be able to setup a world beating company. I've seen the smartest entrepreneurs and the smartest mathematicians and they are just totally different beasts. Who's more talented Albert Einstein or Michael Jordan?

Yeah.
It takes a high IQ for both, but a very different personality, education, interests, etc.
