A Woman's View of Economics

"Economics... could achieve a scientific character only when men had become social beings and unanimously followed certain kinds of behaviour, so that those who did not keep the rules could be considered to be asocial or abnormal." -- Hannah Arendt, The Human Condition, Ch. II, section 6 'The Rise of the Social'

Interpretation: If economic models were to actually start working as predicted, and economists suddenly become able to predict and prescribe as they would like to, it would be a sign that the last vestiges of meaningful individuality had been squeezed of one's community.

Alternate interpretation: A science of economics presupposes communism.

Discuss amongst yourselves! ^_^
