Besides, I’ll offer another thought experiment. Dohsan, you assert that the difference between science and economics is that science research is costly (or at least, costlier) than is economics research. So let’s explore that idea more closely. Plenty of science fields – notably the ‘theoretical’ fields – involve incur relatively low costs, indeed, arguably, lower than that of most economists. Research in string theory, loop quantum gravity, M-theory, requires little more than a desk, some pencils & paper, and copious quantities of coffee. Theoretical chemists who specialize in, say, computational chemistry and cheminformatics just require computing power, which becomes cheaper every day. And naturally we have the entire discipline of mathematics which, at most, requires some computing power, and usually doesn’t require even that. Granted, one might argue that math is not an actual science, but hey, it is funded by the NSF.
