The Economy Is Far Too Important To Be Left To Economists

Same shit different day. Economics is just the latest excuse for the ruling class to take your shit away. Coronation of Charles VII of France (1429), detail of the painting Jeanne d’Arc

Economics was originally called Political Economy, and it still is, they just hide the fact that economics is inherently political. Economics is not a science, it’s just politics with charts. It’s not a class in school, it’s class warfare, waged from elite schools upon the poor.
