An Economist’s Lament

11/05/2010

The study of economics has always been an enjoyable intellectual pursuit. There are lots of arcane terms and inside jokes that economists enjoy discussing and sharing.

But, it seems we have reached a tipping point where economics is becoming polluted by politics, and I’m sad about that. Should I parse my thoughts to support one political side over the other?

As I’ve said many times, economics is not religion. There is wisdom in all schools of economic thought, and we should pick and choose as appropriate for the economic situation.

Politics = pollution . . . dammit!
