MNE  What’s the use of economists? Comment on Lars Syll on ‘What’s the use of economics?’  Plus

For 200+ years, economists do not understand what science is all about and what the subject matter of economics is. Plus  While economists are useless for science, even the dumbest moron is useful as a sand sack in political warfare.

RWER  And the answer is NCND ― economics after 200+ years of Glomarization. Comment on Lars Syll on ‘What are axiomatizations good for?’ 

Plus Economics needs a paradigm shift and the expulsion of the scientifically incompetent. Plus  For every opinion, there is an equally plausible counter-opinion and that is perfect Glomarization. See * below. Plus  The point of axiomatization is to clearly state the premises. Plus The elementary production-consumption economy is for a start defined by three macroeconomic axioms: Yw=WL, O=RL, C=PX. See * below.

ES  The Theory of Value and the worthlessness of economics. Comment on Peter Dorman on ‘The Value of Life and the Metaphor of Choice’. Plus  Studying optimization, just like studying epicycles, is a thing of the proto-scientific past.  Plus The microfoundations approach in ALL conceivable variants is bound to fail. Plus The ridiculous behavioral Paradox of Value has been rectified long ago. Plus The axiomatically correct objective-systemic Law of Value.

 

BE  MMT: How mathematical incompetence helps the Kelton-Fraud. Comment on Brian Romanchuk on ‘Primer: The Kalecki Profit Equation (Part I, II)’. [See * below. Restored]  Plus  To this day, economists do not get the foundational concept of their subject matter straight.

WCI  The miracle cure of economists’ micro-macro schizo. Comment on Nick Rowe on ‘Micro Profs teaching Intro Macro’. See * below. Plus  Loop-Link  Plus  Economics is for 200+ years now what Feynman called a cargo cult science.  Plus  Not only constrained optimization has to be dismissed but the whole set of behavioral axioms.

RWER  Hooray! The formalization issue is finally settled. Comment on Lars Syll on ‘Paul Krugman — a math-is-the-message-modeler’ and ‘Krugman’s formalization schizophrenia’. See * below.  Plus

Keynesianism is dead for 80+ years but After-Keynesians have not realized it. Plus  Keynes never came to grips with profit. Plus  Fortunately for Keynes and After-Keynesian swampies, economics is only a titular science.  Plus  Orthodoxy, Heterodoxy, and Pluralism are provably false.  Plus   First rule of science: Do NOT apply religious/spiritual concepts in an economic argument. Plus Walrasianism, Keynesianism, Marxianism, Austrianism, is buried at the Flat-Earth Cemetery.  Plus  Luckily for economists, scientific failure does not prevent a career as useful political idiot. Plus  The problem with economics is NOT that a true theory is misapplied in a crisis but that there is no true theory, to begin with. See * below.  Plus  Show first your economic axioms or get out of the discussion.  Plus  The Prime Cosmic Directive says: If it isn’t macro-axiomatized it isn’t economics.  Plus  The only question of interest is the paradigm shift from false Walrasian microfoundations and false Keynesian macrofoundations to the true macrofoundations. See * below.  Plus  “You can’t get any more empirical and grounded in the temporal universe than accounting."

WCI  It has been said before but economists still don’t get it. Comment on Nick Rowe’s ‘Hydraulic Monetarism’. Plus Economists never got the relationship between macroeconomic flows, differences of flows, change of stocks, and stocks straight. Plus  The theory of money has to be built upon macrofoundations and not upon silly microeconomic barter or casino stories.

WCI Nick Rowe’s soapbubbling about money.

Comment on Nick Rowe on ‘The Parable of the Fruit Trees’. Plus Money starts as a medium of transaction and it supports ANY level of economic activity. See * below.  Plus Barter models have always been false and will always be false. Plus The lethal flaw of The Parable of the Fruit Trees is the obsolete concept of direct barter.  In the monetary economy, barter is indirect. Plus Economic analysis starts at zero. And this holds also for the theory of money. Plus  Nick Rowe and Matthew Young have not gotten the point that in the monetary economy barter is indirect.  Plus Supply-demand-equilibrium has always been nincompoop-economics. Plus Vagueness and inconclusiveness protect the scientifically incompetent and secure the status quo.

 

TRU Link to the refutation of Richard Murphy's  ‘MMT: economics for an economy focussed on meeting the needs of most people’.

 

MNE Richard Murphy: the MMT fraudster dressed up as realist. Comment on Richard Murphy on ‘MMT: economics for an economy focussed on meeting the needs of most people’. Plus The point at issue is NOT thrashing MMT but to answer the question: What is wrong with MMT?  Plus “You got to know the system if you want to change it.” Plus Keynes, Post-Keynesians, and all MMTers flunked the test. Plus A sketch of the monetary economy after the demise of communism and capitalism. Plus Ideologies are for the retarded soapbubblers of the so-called social sciences. Plus Macroeconomic profit does not come into existence because some humans are greedy but because Q=−S.

 

MNE  Employment theory as an example of proto-scientific soapbubbling. Comment on Sandwichman on ‘The Wage[s]-Lump Doctrine ― still dogma after all these years’. Plus The Legitimate Sovereign can realize any employment level by applying the Employment Law. Plus Make science great again! Throw all economists out! Start with MMTers! Take Tom Hickey first! Plus The foundational MMT balances equation is provably false. This is sufficient for the refutation of MMT. Plus Economics has never been more than story-telling. Plus The political realm and the scientific realm run on fundamentally different principles. And this is why they have to be kept strictly apart. Plus  Economic policy guidance has NO sound scientific foundations for 200+ years. Plus Politics has to be determined in the political sphere by the Legitimate Sovereign. Plus  You cannot achieve full employment if you don’t know the Employment Law. Plus The mixing of politics and science always corrupts science. Plus  It is pretty obvious that economists from Smith/Ricardo via Keynes to MMT never understood what macroeconomic profit is.

 

ES Employment theory as an example of proto-scientific soapbubbling. Comment on Sandwichman on ‘The Wage[s]-Lump Doctrine ― still dogma after all these years’. Plus The employment theory is false for 200+ years. Plus The Employment Law defines the set screws for policymakers. Plus The auctioneer has been a construct of breathtaking idiocy. Plus  It is never too late to do serious scientific work. Plus

Since the Employment Law consists exclusively of measurable variables, every econometrician can test it. Plus  Testing the Employment Law is in principle not different from testing the Phillips Curve.

 

 TRU  Link from Tax Research UK blog to 'MMT: Richard Murphy’s battle-for-money hoax' on Mike Norman Economics blog. Plus Politically, MMT is a fraud and scientifically it is garbage.

Comment on Richard Murphy on ‘The battle for money has begun’. Plus  Politically, MMT is a fraud and scientifically it is garbage.  Plus Money is not a thing, money is not a fixed stock, money is information. Plus  MMT is scientific junk and political fraud. That’s what is wrong with MMT!

 

MNE  The Third Way: Towards the happy zero-tax economy. Comment on Tom Hickey on ‘From Wicksell to Le Bourva and MMT’. Plus Fact is that MMT is NOT the true theory but just another political fraud. Plus

The Bible never ever contradicts the axiomatically correct macroeconomic theory. Plus The stupidity and fraud of economists are destructive to society.

WCI How economists missed out on the essential relationship of economics. Comment on Nick Rowe on ‘Public Debt: A Global Perspective’.  Plus The point at issue is the relationship between deficits and distribution.

MNE  How MMT enlightens Washington. Comment on Zach Carter’s ‘Stephanie Kelton Has The Biggest Idea In Washington’. Plus Poor Bernie Sanders, his supposedly left-wing economic platform has been written by Wall Street operatives. Plus The whole UBI-JG discussion is pointless because economists in general and MMTers, in particular, lack the true Employment Theory. Plus Since Adam Smith/Karl Marx, economics is a scientific fraud and MMT is an integral part of it. Plus It is an unassailable scientific fact that Public Deficit = Private Profit. Plus MMT is storytelling cross-dressed as science. Plus The MMT elites are either stupid or corrupt. In any case, they are NO scientists.
