Milton Friedman

The 'post Autistic Economics Network'? Is that an anagram for morons ? My choice is Keynes, the father of modern economics. How can the likes of Kuznets be mentioned in the same paragraph as the great man. The latter had his name pinned to a load of cuves that all look the same, the former expended himself in saving Britain (which saved the world, basically).

Returning to the initial point, the idea of economics without detailed quantitative analysis is laughable. A dismal scientist without an equally dismal looking model, is useless. When economics gives up on maths, and gives in to "intellectual rigour", the intellectuals get carried away and churn up things like Medium Term Financial Strategies.
