Morici is neither a liberal nor a scientist [Letter]

July 08, 2014

In a recent column in The Sun, Peter Morici states that he cannot be a scientist and a liberal at the same time ("Why I can't be a scientist and a liberal," July 1).

He is correct!

The fact is, he can never call himself a scientist because economics is not a science, and economists are not scientists. Embracing political positions has nothing to do with science nor does it qualify you as a scientist.
