Tech Wreck Heck

It’s darkly comical that as tech is having more of an impact on all of our lives, economists insist that it’s having little to no effect because it does not show up in the very narrow set of 19th Century-oriented measures their profession uses as its benchmarks.

The world would be wholly better off if economics as such were eliminated, and the study of “political economy” resurrected. Never happen, though, as would require recognizing that economic choices are inherently political, are actually choices, and don’t require a hundred pages of abstruse math to comprehend.
