Microeconomics is autistic funtimes with sterile abstractions
Macroeconomics is unfalsifiable, unpredictive nonsense

...if we're being generous. If we're being honest, every single macroeconomic framework to ever have a public policy heyday has been falsified one after another, partially because of the nature of the field and the impossibility of carrying out a well-designed, controlled experiment (which limits us to pure inference rather than predictive modeling,) and partially because macroeconomics is a deeply ideological thing taking "uncritically defend bourgeois rule" as its jumping off point.

Merely using math to be precise about what exactly your theory claims and having sophisticated, mathematically rigorous ways of generating your untestable inferences doesn't make it a science. The crucial difference is the possibility of experiment.

Everything needs to be studied the same way as natural science, or else it's not a """""""real""""""" science.
This board is so goddamn stupid.

I love the fact that you stopped shitposting walls of text because you realized your "arguments" against CS were uneducated trash.

It's not elitism, CS education is terrible. Especially in every American university.

climatology is a hard science
no it isn't because there are to many variables impossible to control for, it's the same issue that plagues economics

CS, linguistics, and econ are already partly hard sciences. All of them can be, given enough time and thought.

And how would you know that? CS majors at actually good universities seem to be getting good jobs and research positions.

this chart is pretty accurate desu. biology gets immensely more complex the more you learn it while math stays about the same and physics gets easier.
