Is Economics a Science?

I posted number 20 of my YouTube videos in the “Economics is Fun” series, completing the set (for the time being). Both Xander and I had great fun making them, keeping them informal and fairly short.  The aim was to show that much of economics derives from common sense, and that ultimately it is about the way we treat each other when we trade together. Atoms and stars don’t change their behaviour when they have new information, so economics can never be a science like physics and astronomy.  The playlist of these videos has attracted tens of thousands of viewers so far, so some people must have like them!
