Economics is no different than atmospheric science, geo science, physics,
mathematics, etc.  By my statement that social sciences would serve humanity
better by interpreting the "will of the people" I didn't mean that in an
anthropic sense.  It should be a purely scientific effort.  Hence, my answer to
you is that yes Economists are "equiped" to do exactly this and I hope they are
by no means trained for it!!
