Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Assumption #6: The purpose of Economics is to analyze and explain the economy.

Clearly the true purpose of the current 'Mainstream' version of Economics is to disguise the abuse of power by the wealthy few to facilitate their ongoing looting of the society by anesthetizing and narcotizing the general population to the ongoing parasitism that is gnawing now on vital organs of the body politic and social. Any dissenting opinions are characterized as 'crazy' and 'heretical' and it is not even possible to frame a coherent analysis of the problems in the terms of the existing formulation of 'Economics'.
