Depends on your viewpoint

Here’s a nice analysis of current economic divides from the viewpoint of a non-economist. Note how he replaces “salt-water/freshwater” economics with longrunonomics and shotrunonomics. This removes any implication of inferiority and makes it harder to isolate people by using a term in a derogatory fashion. Analysing economists purely via their policies is laudable in keeping the debate above brow and informed rather then stereotyping and collectivising.
