Whats Wrong With Economics?

Whats Wrong With Economics? | Economics | Scoop.it
Surely the true test of whether an economic policy or system is desirable is whether people want it? After all, the economy is an abstract idea, what ultimately lies beneath the models are people.

This author wants us to unlearn economics, I say that it is learning that needs to happen in the first place. This is a classic case of a little bit of knowledge can be dangerous. Absorbing only 20-40 % of an idea before making statements on it always leads to real problems.  Stop blogging and go back to reading and thinking for awhile.

Read this closely, it explains A LOT about what is wrong with the attitude of contempoary economists -- both "left" and "right".  To compare Friedman to Dylan is intriguing, but it gets both Friedman and Dylan 'wrong' in terms of history and contemporary context.

 

BTW, Friedman's birthdate was just a few weeks ago --- that sparked off the discussion ... no need to be puzzled Stephen.
