A class taught to most high school students about how a society manages its scarce resources. It is comprised of a handful of mildly persuasive concepts pumped full of jargon and needlessly represented by graphs to deter intelligent people from realizing that this is not a real science.
Much like intelligent design, economics is a popular psuedo-science that intellectual humans would overlook.

The self-proclaimed “social science” contrastingly strives to ignore more of human nature every few years with a book written by a middle-aged man who realizes that he is not smart enough to discover anything new in a real science.
