    I might be commenting on the wrong podcast. I think it was mentioned here, that economics is uniquely subject to intentional distortions because, unlike other fields, there is an inherent profit motive in deceiving people. Where as no one benefits from misunderstanding how rockets work, for example. But I can think of a few other fields where deception seems to be prevalent, such as climate science, epidemiology, to name a couple. Perhaps, it’s more about the government involvement than the nature of economics.
