Astrology Not Economics

It's Come To This: CNN Brings On Psychics To Tell Us What The Economy Will Be Like | Crooks and Liars:
"But there's a subtle message by relegating discussion of the economy to psychics that economic recovery is something that is up to chance, or the stars, or Providence. That it's something that takes a special sense to understand and that is just frankly b.s. of the highest order. Economics is not that mystical, nor is it that difficult to understand. But as long as the media keeps it something beyond explanation, you foster a sense of hopelessness and helplessness among the viewers, which makes them far more dependent upon experts."

Now granted that economics is well known for being a bit fuzzy around the edges and having physics envy but astrology? wow.
