Economics as a discipline suffers from “physics envy” when it tries and fails to build mathematical models of the economy and society.

In particular, economics and culture can’t be viewed separately. While some people care most about economic agendas, and others focus on social issues, you can’t really separate them. A vibrant market economy, vibrant economic growth requires a solid foundation in family, civil society, rule of law and religion.
