economists

Having worked with a church and experienced first hand how messy people are and especially how messy people are when they are in large groups it always makes me wonder how economists and people like Bank of England governator Mervyn King can predict what needs to be done to grow the economy or that the economy will grow or shrink.
I can’t predict what I’m going to do in the next 5minutes so how can these high priests of economic growth make statements like the economy will shrink or grow by _ % in the next year. The economy is really just people like me who can’t be reduced to a number in some type of computer program.
