Wikipedia entries on economics seem to be written mostly by graduate students, eager to share their knowledge with others, and a disproportionate number of Austrian, feminist and other heterodox economists.
Sometimes they get it pretty much exactly right, as with this description of the practice of economics:
Yup, economics uses mathematics, and that's the most important thing to know about it. What makes a good theory? Precision, not accuracy, nor conformity with experience. Plus, of course, the possibility of generating additional research - and so additional publications, grants, and so on.
Clicking on the footnote suggests that these words on theory are one person's interpretation Milton Friedman's Methodology of Positive Economics. It's not exactly how I understand Friedman, but it's a pretty good description of how some people approach the discipline.
So WCIers, should I leave the Wikipedia entry on the practice of economics alone? Or should I modify it? If so, how?
