NOT QUITE A FISKING. At Economist's View, an extended response to an essay titled "The Autistic Economist." It's not quite a fisking as the concluding paragraph qualifies for the Quote of the Day.
Please don't confuse being annoyed with the way the message is delivered with a refusal to consider alternative viewpoints. I'm more than willing to listen, but it would be easier if the criticism showed more comprehension of our models and methods and how they've evolved through time, and a little more respect for those who do their very best to approach economic problems in the most scientific way possible. Their intent is to add to our knowledge, not push an agenda. I'll leave it at that for now.
