/r/badeconomics metrics (The division of intelligence is limited by the extent of the internet)

A friend of mine once said: You know what the problem is with being an economist? Everyone has an opinion about the economy. Nobody goes up to a geologist and says, 'Igneous rocks are fucking bullshit.' This subreddit is the repository for all of the woeful, antiquated, or plain old misguided notions Redditors post about how the economy works.
