Economists are Douchebags

A business school professor at Wharton has found that not only are economists more selfish and more likely to cheat, but that even just the study of economics and business has a criminogenic effect.

The quick bullet points are:
  • Less charitable giving
  • More deception for personal gain
  • Greater acceptance of greed
  • Less concern for fairness
He wonders if there is a problem with how we teach economics.

Gee,  you think?

Go read the rest.

H/t Salon.
