@worstall Cost benefit analysis allows faux economists to make up numbers for externalities and then claim the results are science

@RichardJMurphy That\’s rich coming from someone whose entire corpus of work is estimation from incomplete information.
A question for the audience: is a faux economist one who did an accounting and economics degree and then proudly states that they paid no attention to the economics lectures because they were obviously wrong?
Please note that Tim Worstall is not an economist and has never claimed to be one. For while he did an accounting and economics degree and did pay attention that\’s still not enough to make the claim.
