“Never trust a poor economist”

"Never trust a poor economist” is an infrequently used saying. If an economist is so good, why doesn’t he or she take the advice and become rich? “Never trust a skinny chef” is a somewhat similar saying.

“Never trust a poor economist” was a post on the blog The Artist Presently Known As Ed on January 6, 2005.

Earlier in the show, one of the guests admitted a common question of economists was “if you know so much, why aren’t you rich?”

Um, could it be because their business is basically a pseudoscience like reading bumps on people’s heads?

Jean Dreze, one of India’s finest economists (and also one of the most grounded) outside his office in Ranchi. Spent the day in his invigorating company.
