The intense pressure to politicize every aspect of academia will not spare economics, and why would it? A society willing to topple statues is hardly one to worry about pulling down a body of knowledge, especially one skillfully characterized by the Left as a political program rather than an actual social science.

Why can’t this “new normal” system keep us all housed and fed even after the coronavirus crisis fades? Why can’t we substitute politics for economics, and in fact redefine the latter as a state program?
