Economics ― still the ‘science’ of the mentally impaired

Comment on Barkley Rosser on ‘The Death Of Yeshua Bin Yusuf’


Walrasianism, Keynesianism, Marxianism, Austrianism, MMT, and Pluralism are mutually contradictory, axiomatically false, and materially/formally inconsistent.#1 Since Adam Smith, economics is a failed/fake science.

The economist Barkley Rosser, though, is NOT worried that economics is proto-scientific garbage to this very day, he wonders instead how Jesus was probably called in Aramaic. And he wants to drive this point home: “Here is the hard core line from me: this guy really lived and most of what he said is for real.”

Needless to emphasize that historical research has established that the biblical Jesus never existed and that the Bible is a socio-pathological fabrication from the first letter to the last point.#2-#4

The absurdity of the situation consists of: (i) the economist Barkley Rosser gets the subject matter of economics wrong because he is too stupid for the elementary algebra that underlies macroeconomics,#5, #6 (ii) true to the traditional strategy of economics imperialism#7 this incompetent scientist dabbles in religion, (iii) unsurprisingly, from inborn sloppiness he ignores the current state of research in this offside field.#8

How can it be that a person who violates all scientific standards and lacks all insight into his own scientific incompetence enjoys a good standing in academic economics?

It cannot be a coincidence that economics is failed/fake science and that incompetent scientists occupy the organizational control centers from peer review, textbooks, grants/financing, to the EconNobel. This makes only sense if economics is NOT a science but a branch of the propaganda/entertainment industry.

The fact is, that the benchmark of economics is NOT cutting edge science but the art of lobotomizing a population by storytelling as it has been perfected by the different priesthoods throughout history.

The significance of Barkley Rosser's Yussuf story is to tell the intellectual proletariat of Econ 101 that stupidity is NOT a hindrance for an academic career in economics but the essential precondition.#10
