Economists Quotes

Economists are surgeons who operate beautifully on the dead and torment the living.

Nicolas Chamfort

Politicians of all stripes are always in danger at looking at every problem from an abstract point of view or being briefed by officials, academics, or economists who know every science but the science of human nature.

Joseph Jacques Jean Chrtien

Unlimited economic growth has the marvelous quality of stilling discontent while maintaining privilege, a fact that has not gone unnoticed among liberal economists.

Avram Noam Chomsky

Economics is extremely useful as a form of employment for economists

John Kenneth Galbraith

Isn't it interesting that the same people who laugh at science fiction listen to weather forecasts and economists?

Kelvin Throop III

If all the economists were laid end to end, they'd never reach a conclusion.

George Bernard Shaw

Some political scientists, for example, say that the Economic Man may be very nice for playing games with but that he is an abstraction who does not exist, while Hitler and Stalin are real and not to be played with. Economic analysis, they say, not only does not help us to understand such political actors but makes it more difficult to bring them within the purview of social science by systematically excluding or deforming their specific motives. Economists, seeking mathematical convenience, turn us away from the consideration of the most important social phenomena.

Allan David Bloom
