A Simple Explanation for the Failure of the Economists

Are economists corrupt, nostalgic, irrational, group-thinkers, and more? Maybe. They are, after all, human beings.

But here is a simpler offering for their inability to explain the past (let alone to accurately predict the future): 1) they aren’t nearly so smart as they thought and 2) the world is more complex than they imagined.

A generally worthwhile intellectual shortcut: don’t attribute to conspiracy that which can be more easily attributed to ineptness and/or ignorance.


About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
