You would have a point if economics were a natural science. The social sciences are less predictable, and econ is even more complicated because politics are involved. The scientific method shouldn't be ignored nor should it be worth the same proof as it is in natural sciences when it applies to economics. Some universities have economics in the business department. A few have it in the social sciences department. I can't think of any that have it with the natural sciences.
