Most 'economists' are not economists - one doesn't need to look at 'Educational Background' to realize this.

They are practitioners of a strange and dismal nonscience that has very little to do with 'economics'.

The truth of this sad claim is clearly demonstrated by a great deal that has passed for economic theory and practice in history.
