I am little more sympathetic to the "what have the economists ever done for us?" (cue the Month Pythonistas!)

The problem is essentially the difference between playing a video game and writing one. Every now and again someone is going to have to hire an artist that does neither (write or play), otherwise it will look awful...

It is not that there is not some measure of objective utility to Economics, it is the fundamental difficulty of creating a political system where that will ever matter.

We cannot have competent people in government because they all have *jobs* outside...
