I asked myself today the question if economic lessons can be funny. I sit in macroeconomic an our professor tries to do jokes. He isn’t really expecting us to laugh but he tries to create this one and a half hour not as dry as the stuff seems like. He does some jokes about the premises economic science does. But on the other hand he teach us exactly this premises. This is funny but maybe just for me. It is hard to laugh about his jokes, but I am rolling on the floor about him and the whole science behavior.
Why economy thinks to have the answer to every question? Why they think money is it worth to rule our life?
They really have to be far away from this life to think it, or the are more humorous then Charlie Chaplin and Mr. Bean together. Maybe their jokes are on a so high level, that it is not necessary to laugh about. Maybe their humor is the humor of our life. the humor of a old Greek tragedy. Homer was as more humorous as he let fall his characters. The tragedy of human beings is nowadays a tragedy of money. So maybe economists are the new writers of our life. As more humorous as they let us fall without a chance to escape.
