Reasons for Existence of Economists

Came across this priceless one in an article on US Mortgage situation in Business Week.

... that the only reason economists exist is to make astrologers look good.
Now I should share this with my students in the next business economics class!

Depends on the economist. I know at least one economist on a liberal blog I read who has been talking about the mortgage situation being bad for well over a year now.
