Re: Economics and Economists
"economics as a science "
Science consists of doing the same thing and getting the same results each time or knowing _why_ you didn't.
Most economics at government level is voodoo handwaving at best.
It's rather telling that the people notionally in charge of the economy have _NO_ economic qualifications but believe they know better than people with actual experience and an understanding of the backgrounds and put their friends in charge of crucial decisions. It's Dunning-Kruger writ large
