“…it isn’t science”

In case I haven’t mentioned it before, Russ Roberts is on my list of non-pathetic economists. I recommend reading his article, Know Your Limits, in The European Magazine.

This article sums up nicely why Russ thinks we should be more skeptical of economists who are not willing to admit or, worse, aren’t aware of the limits to what they know.
