  •  I took the diarists point to be the same as yours, (0+ / 0-)

    more or less:  that Economics is not a science.  But I understood the diarist's point to be that the idea of a Nobel Prize in economics relies upon and reinforces the idea that it is a science.  And in the end all this does is cast legitimacy upon wacky (but useful for the rich) economic ideas, which are not based in reality.

    We may have democracy, or we may have wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can't have both. - Former Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis
