Where do economists fail today?
Economists focus too much on thing that are measurable, and forget about other things.
For example, if you look at medicine, it might seem like a binary problem: people either live or they die. But what about quality of life? If you are living a horrible life under treatment, and you die shortly after the treatment ends, this is not a victory, it's a mistake.
What about dignity? We might be able to write checks for anyone whose job is being replaced by a robot, but guess what, many people would prefer to find another job instead. There is a sense of dignity in being able to work for money, which you then use to provide for your family.
The data often struggles to help economists to make a non-quantifiable decision. It's important to realize that, and understand that sometimes a decisions cannot be made on data alone.
