    Because if they were opining and shaving numbers for your tuition dollars, they were over the ethical line about influencing from positions of authority in a public institution.

    The New Deal DID work and my parents were perfect examples.  The Great Depression was deep and wide because of a LACK of infrastructure projects like WPA and CCC.  The New Deal was nothing but upside economics....unless you are a Republican and don't care about the working class.

      ....and that's exactly my point, most economists don't know shit. Economics today is nothing more than free-market fundamentalism, right-wing anti-government sentiments and complex mathematical models masked as "social science". Economics is to social science what astrology is to astronomy.
