The WSJ in Defense of the Dismal Science:

Economists pride themselves on being the most scientific of social scientists. This leads them to reduce all human motives and behavior to quantifiable variables such as utility, welfare and income. But people are not by nature quantitative, and their motives often have no economic basis. Today’s most divisive issues, from fairness and inequality to national identity and culture, don’t have economic solutions.

waaa? Well there are no solutions for neo-classical economists that’s for sure.

Show Notes
Commentary from the World’s Most Liveable City and how neo-con analysis overlooks the biggest issue. How does that sort of oversight effect Karl’s commuter polluter friends on the Cannonball run-like Calder freeway? Bid rent curves lead us to the cost of petrol pricing cycles, where Andrey Firsov (petrolspy.com.au/) joins to reveal his insights on the collusion at the micro level. US Senator Bernie Sanders also drops in to add his weight to this costly issue from the macro perspective.
