Economists as cheerleaders

Sometimes it appears the main role of economists is to act as cheerleaders to tell us what we (or maybe the establishment) wants us to hear and to convince us everything is great. That’s probably easier than trying to solve real economic problems.

Do you know what the DBS degree is. (The D stands for doctor.)

Most news organiztions have reported on a group of economicsts’ declaring the recession over. I usually check the CBC news wesite first.
