Links on ‘Who are You Calling Chumps?’

Comment on ProGrowthLiberal


ProGrowthLiberal learns from the dictionary that chump means “a stupid or foolish person”. He thinks that this a perfect description for Trump supporters.

He overlooks that this description applies to economists in general and to the agenda pushers of EconoSpeak in particular. To paraphrase the Urban Dictionary: An economist, colloq. chump is ‘someone who does not understand the basics of economics.’ Accordingly, the main output of both orthodox and heterodox chumps is pointless squabbling as exemplified by ProGrowthLiberal.
