America's least-respected economist blurts again
July 17, 2013 - Harry Eagar
In a review of one of his crummy books (Book Review 174: "America's Housing Boom and Bust," Nov 27, 2010), I once called Thomas Sowell America's least-respected economist. I think that's true.
But that was mild. It is not obvious that having a Chicago Ph.D. in economics qualifies one specially to opine about Trayvon Martin (heck, it isn't even obvious that it specially qualifies one to opine about economics, but that's a topic for another day), but Sowell did anyway.
Wonkette's Alex Ruthrauff provided a funny takedown. Nut sentence:
"Thomas Sowell earns a good living by expounding silly, unsupportable, poorly conceived “ideas” that appeal to lunatic right-wingers and make everyone else’s heads explode."
America, land of opportunity.
