A Blogger’s “Lazy” approach to (not quite) defending Economics as a Science

A concise critique on Joris Luyendijk, previous writer for the Guardian, and his article Don’t let the Nobel prize fool you. Economics is not a science.  The critique focuses on particular sections of the Luyendijk’s article and challenges him to bring more than just editorial perspective.  What I enjoy about this article is that it appears Smith successfully brings more in the challenge and with seemingly less effort than Luyendijk.  The article is from his blog Noahpinion.
