Part Two of 'A Human Science' (Economics Is About Humans)

So, what happens, is that we take the human side out of it. That is fine. In Buddhist philosophy, there is a human side and a 'pure' side. But the situation is different with "economics."  We are already putting ourselves into a category, a subject field, called that. When you call it "economics," the saber is taking its first cut (Or: the word "economics" is the first stroke of rhetoric), and it's a humanistic cut.
     Economics is fundamentally human;
     What they are doing is applying numbers to it.
