Is economics just a big circle jerk of "orthodoxy"?
I mean that there are a million and one economic theories all of which you can fund studies and data supporting them, the ones you're taught in schools are just arbitrary "orthodoxy" that you're not supposed to question or they try to outcast you. Economics isn't a science and pretends to be one through a big circlejerk, but "orthodoxy" even differs in a few different countries. Chinese orthodoxy is not the same as the US.

No, not even in 101. They are all smart guys in the class, but just look like jerks who always try to optimize things.

I am absolutely positive it's not, for if it were, I'd have enjoyed economics a HELLUVALOT more.
