As the article stands, it seems no section cannot end without a sentence or paragraph of "what would Rothbard say?" This places undue weight on his views and gives them undue emphasis relative to the other Austrian views and scholars on these subjects. — Preceding unsigned comment added by SPECIFICO ( talk • contribs) 16:18, June 6, 2013
The text read "Mainstream economists have argued that Austrians are often averse to the use of mathematics and statistics in economics. However, independent scholar Martin Sibileau, in 2014, offered a formal proof that, based on the Church-Turing thesis, human action is not "decidable", "computable" and therefore cannot be mathematized. He also suggested a logics-based approach for a definitive formalization of the Austrian thought."
Whether human action is decidable or computable has nothing to do with whether statistics can be applied. As shown by the indeterminacy in quantum state measurements, whether something *can* be known or computed has nothing to do whether it can be statistically modeled.
Is the inclusion of this section against Wikipedia guidelines? See Wikipedia:Criticism in the first paragraph, "In most cases separate sections devoted to criticism, controversies, or the like should be avoided in an article because these sections call undue attention to negative viewpoints." If this is not against guidelines, why not? Thank you in advance. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2600:1702:1B0:AE90:9916:E5A4:9199:4338 ( talk) 01:44, 30 April 2020 (UTC)
Per this old discussion:
Austrians do not think of themselves as being “neoliberal” and view the term as an offensive epithet. Slapping that baggage-laden tag on this article violates neutral point of view.
