The To-Be-Expected Angst Created for Economists by Mathematics
Historical evidence on how scholars have reacted to an enhanced role of mathematics in economics agrees with plausible theories about how people can be expected to react.

Such evidence has negligible power to test whether too little or too much of mathematics is employed during each period of scholarly history.
