A little economic knowledge can do quite a bit of harm

From Free Exchange:
I've certainly met my share of Econ 101 robots, who can't talk beyond the "markets are always right" models one gets in early economics classes.

I know some Ph.D. trained economist robots, who also can't talk beyond the "markets are always right" mantra. Some economic problems, as it turns out, are more complex than the "X marks the spot" pirate logic (AAARRGH!) of simple supply and demand.
