Economics isn’t just complex equations and forecasts. It is also a way of disciplining your thinking, making sure things add up, asking when one variable changes if others are also changing, ensuring your assumptions and predictions don’t contradict each other, and testing your hypotheses against alternative hypotheses and evidence. Plenty of non-economists adhere to that discipline and plenty of degree-carrying economists don’t.

Daily Reminder: There is no Nobel Prize in economics. The Nobel committee considers economics to be a cross between voodoo and quackery.

Powell earned a degree in politics from Princeton University in 1975 and a Juris Doctor from Georgetown University Law Center in 1979. He moved to investment banking in 1984, and has since worked for several financial institutions. He briefly served as Under Secretary of the Treasury for Domestic Finance under President George H. W. Bush in 1992. More recently, he was a visiting scholar at the Bipartisan Policy Center from 2010 to 2012. He has served as a member of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors since 2012. He is the first Chair of the Federal Reserve to not hold a Ph.D. in Economics since 1987.

Issued by the Swedish Central Bank and using the Nobel name without permission. The real Nobel Committee does not recognize economics as anything other than a joke. Mmkay??

economic is a useless degree.  All you need to know and do is:

when economy is bad -- tax cuts for the rich
when economy is good -- more tax cuts for the rich
