Personally my reasoning is that there are large amounts of mutually exclusive priestseg Muslim Christian Jew Hindu Buddhist Sikh etc only one group can be correct so it's likely they're all wrong Do you have any similar reason as to why economists are wrong? permalink embed save parent report reply GenuinelyLenin 7 points 1 day ago Why are you so sure priests who have studied for years are wrong? Because every single supernatural explanation for how the world works has been thoroughly debunked Do you have any similar reason as to why economists are wrong? Because any explanation they have for how the economy works only mystifies it further or is reduced to some arqument over the character or biology of some out-group It's a bunch reversed reasoning to rationalize the unequal distribution of wealth and power permalink embed save parent report reply HelloTims S -2 points 23 hours ago Because any explanation they have for how the economy works only mystifies it further or is reduced to some argument over the character or biology of some out-group It's a bunch reversed reasoning to rationalize the unequal distribution of wealth and power What? That's completely false Economists discovered and de-mystified many aspects of the economy For example inflation and investment bubbles People didn't understand those remotely before economists know people do Because every single supernatural explanation for how the world works has been thoroughly debunked I don't believe there's currently a working natural explanation for how the world works either The standard model leaves a lot unexplained Don't get me wrong I still believe it's better than religious explanations but natural explanations haven't been rigorously proven any more than God did it have permalink embed save parent report reply Economists discovered and de-mystified many aspects of the economy Meme
