Economics is rightly called the "Dismal Science". It attempts to work within a framework that has as its core belief the use and despoilation of very friggin thing for profit. It's like finding "scientists" to justify and study Slavery or Feudalism...who earn their keep by reinforcing what the Master or the Feudal Chieftan believes already...but could use some jargon backing up...that and a priest or shaaman or two.
Economists who don't take into account the misery of children because there is no formula or anyone willing to pay them to study its long range costs are self-lubricating pricks.
