“Economists are paid to worry”

The economy causes worry among both economists and investors. The difference, as the saying goes, is that “economists are paid to worry.”
 
“Economists are paid to worry about the future” was cited in print in 1972. “There is an old saying that economists are paid to worry” was cited in 2008.
