A friend of mine once said: You know what the problem is with being an economist? Everyone has an opinion about the economy. No body goes up to a geologist and says, 'Igneous rocks are fucking bullshit.'

-Please post a small explanation on why what you have posted is bad economics, doesn't have to be thesis, but sufficient length to provide context. You have one hour to post an explanation or else it will be removed until you provide an explanation. A few sentences and counterexamples are enough.
OP must write an RI. Other redditors are encouraged to provide RIs and more information.
If an RI is not written within one hour of submission, it will be removed until an RI is provided. Insufficient RIs will also be removed within an hour until an updated RI is submitted.
This RI was determined by popular vote on VI/II/MMXV. Results here.
- Please post the link in np. mode. A link should look something like this:
All questions must be asked in the stickied threads. Do not post any "Is [X, Y, Z] bad economics?" self-posts.
