"Is economics a science?" at least not a Nobel science, as no Nobel there, only memory n obel. This detail means very little. The fact, that we call economics a science, has its profound consequences: “ It gives, the otherwise more or less common, beliefs or knowledge, the legitimacy of a...

Re: Is economics a science?

A bold thesis. The following question you can answer yourself… BTW what's your favourite Tractatus' pr...

Re: Is economics a science?

It seems, one text it not enough to convince anyone that economics is not a science. I should have expected it. So, now I give you two additional texts. One explains what a science is, by showing how improper are the encyclopedic definitions being used nowadays: http://philosopher4hire.eu/index.php?...

A major part of it is about the quantitative math in economics. It is kind of “macro” and “how to save the world”, so I assume it should fit this foru...
