The age-old problem with economists is that they are strong on opinion but weak on knowledge and that they suffer from mental incontinence, that is, the unstoppable urge to blather about every issue between heaven and earth, that is, from crime, addiction, psychology, sociology, philosophy, religion, sport, art, literature, ethics to their heroic fight for the welfare/freedom/survival of humanity. This is known as economics imperialism. The fact is, though, that economists have to this day NO idea how the economy works. Walrasianism, Keynesianism, Marxianism, Austrianism, MMT, Pluralism are mutually contradictory, axiomatically false, materially/formally inconsistent and all got the foundational economic concept of profit wrong. To this day, economists could not get their act together. Economists are scientifically incompetent and Marx/Marxians are NO exception. For details see:
