I know I've said this already but...*snicker*...
Haha. The people that hand out the Nobel prize are wealthy, so I assume they only congregate with other wealthy people. So really it's just friends giving each other high fives. They are very good at economics when it only benefits them. How much money does one have to amass before hitting the "evil-greedy-scheming-ruthless-thief- point of no return" level?
Wow. All of you have no understanding of the Nobel prizes. We're INTPs, have some fucking curiosity and read the wiki. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nobel_Memorial_Prize_in_Economic_Sciences-scratches chin-
So we win awards for selling ourselves out to China and enacting corporate welfare, instigating yet more crony capitalism that corrupts our financial district.
Yup, that's it. Politicians ignore economists... and even economists will dabble in politics too, unfortunately. My father is on the Governor of [state-removed]'s board of economic advisers. The governor met with that group once, and other than that the board just meets with lackeys. For the most part, they are ignored. It's not in politicians' interests to do well on a 10-year scale. It's much better to build something in the next two, and try to get re-elected.Might one assume from this that we do have clever people who know what's going on, but we simply ignore them?
