  1. Isn’t that the project of the history of thought in economics? It appears successful.

    The standard interpretation is that from David Ricardo through Milton Friedman, economists have had the aim to entrench the ruling elite with an economics which insulated them from critique. At least this is what I heard in at least one very good HOT class.
