Economissed (economist/economy + missed; The Economist nickname)

"Economissed” (economist/economy + missed) is a jocular term for when an economic forecast (or an economic forecaster, such as an economist) misses the mark. The weekly newspaper The Economist is often dubbed The Economissed.

“Economissed? Not if you subscribe” was cited in The Economist in 1992. The spelling “eCONomissed” was cited in 2002. “The Economissed Track Record” (Ph.D. economists) was a headline in the financial blog Zero Hedge in August and September 2015.


Wikipedia: The Economist
The Economist is an English-language weekly newspaper owned by the Economist Group and edited in offices in London. Continuous publication began under founder James Wilson in September 1843. For historical reasons, The Economist refers to itself as a newspaper, but each print edition appears on small glossy paper like a news magazine. In 2006, its average weekly circulation was reported to be 1.5 million, about half of which were sold in the United States.

The Economissed Track Record: In January 75% Of Experts Said The Fed Would Have Hiked By Now

If PhD economists were serious about getting things right, they would have a tough job. That goes double for PhD economists charged with making policy decisions based on their conclusions.

That’s because economics (like sociology and political science and astrology) isn’t a real science. It’s a pseudo-science. And as is the case with other pseudo-sciences, it’s flat out impossible to discover laws and immutable truths, no matter what anyone told you in your undergrad economics course.

The “Economissed” Track Record Revisited: Last Month, 82% Of “Experts” Expected A September Fed Hike
Submitted by Tyler Durden on 09/21/2015 15:55 -0400
Last month, when economists were still banging their heads against the wall trying to determine if the turmoil unfolding in China’s equity markets would play a role in the Fed’s decision making come September 16/17, we took a look at how forecasters have fared when it comes to accurately predicting the timing of “liftoff.”
