Ideological Intolerance of Economics: Part 2

McCloskey, Donald N. 1985. The Rhetoric of Economics (Madison: The University of Wisconsin Press).
  140: “In seminars in economics it is common for the speaker to present a statistical result, apparently irrefutable by the rules of positive economics, yet to be met by choruses of “I can’t believe it” or “It doesn’t make sense.”  Milton Friedman’s own Money Workshop at Chicago in the late 1960s and the early 1970s was a case in point.”
