Abstract

This paper revisits the Econ tribe famously documented by Leijonhufvud (1973). In half a century, the Econ have had their practices upended by technology and, for all but a few pockets of stasis, have changed their status hierarchy with new icons that are the focus of societal energy.

Keywords: econography, general mischief
