re: Economics: Economists and God (Bienvenido Macario, Philippines/US) (John Eipper, USA, 08/13/09 10:23 am)

When commenting Robert Crow's post of 12 August, JE wrote:   Recall, Dear WAISers, that we are a "political, economic and religious" discussion Forum.     Check out our website mission statement for proof.  Robert Crow, in just two sentences, touches on economics and God.  Well done! Bienvenido Macario adds: This reminds me of an old joke that is political, that also touches on the economy, religion and history: An economist, architect, a surgeon and a politician were discussing the Creation. The surgeon said:  "Look, we surgeons are the most important. God's a surgeon because the first thing He did was to extract Eve from Adam's rib." The economist said:  "No, God must be an economist, an agro-economist.   God placed Adam and Eve in a garden   that they  may  find food." The architect said:  "No, God must be an architect. He made the world in seven days out of chaos." The politician smiled:  "And who made the chaos, huh?" (Think of all the recent laws the US Congress passed that brought us to this crisis.   And they are just on summer break.   They'll be back.   Unfortunately no one or nothing can stop members of the US Congress from doing their job of legislating and continuing to impose havoc on any chance of recovery.   Right now the debate is about Health Care Reform; after Pres. Obama's trip to Mexico, he promised Immigration Reform.) JE comments:  Given our mission statement, this may be the most WAIS-o-rific of all jokes.  We have physicians (Phyllis Gardner, Paul Pitlick, Rodolfo Neirotti), economists (Robert Crow, Tor Guimaraes, Jordi Molins), clerics (Ernie Hunt), and architects (Marga Jann) in the WAISly fold, but where are the politicians?  I cannot think of a single WAISer who's held high (or reasonably high) elected office, but I'd like to be corrected if I'm wrong.   Maybe this is why we feel so free to dump on professional politicians. -- For information about the World Association of International Studies (WAIS), and its online publication, the World Affairs Report, read its homepage by simply double-clicking on: http://wais.stanford.edu/ John Eipper, Editor-in-Chief, Adrian College, MI 49221 USA
