Economic Dissociative Identity Disorder: The Math Gamer, the Anti-Policy Econometrician and the Narrative Political Economist

Author

  • Bruce L. Benson

Abstract

In this self diagnosis, I examine my career as an economist over 30 years in terms of dissociative identity disorder. The multiple identities of my career have been the math gamer, the anti-policy econometrician, and the narrative political economist. I hope that others can learn something from my story.
