One handed economists

A friend of mine in the financial business, told me why his company likes one handed economists. The normal economists always say "On the one hand...
On the other hand... (generally the opposite)."

And accountants were invented to make meteorology seem an exciting, cutting edge profession.

Economists tend to forget their "science" is nothing without the human behaviour, and they always study more statistics than psychology, hence the fact most of them are usually wrong, with or without a PhD.
At the end a man in the street (or on JB ) has the same credibility.

One handed economists and one handed internet surfers.
Are they one and the same?

Banker I know, had a one-handed buddy who said that, at times, his disability was very popular with the ladies
