Post-Autistic Economics

Can’t quite work out where the name “Post-Autistic Economics” comes from, but this is essentially about numbers being irrelevant in economics. Naturally I approve. [From AdBusters via Rivets]

Post Note : Of course I remember now why the word “autistic” struck a chord – Dave Snowden’s quote from earlier …

“The only humans who analyse all the data and then make a rational choice are autistic, but economists insist this is the way we all work.”
