Physicists: "If you need some help with the math, let me know, but that should be enough to get you started! Huh? No, I don't need to read your thesis, I can imagine roughly what it says."

The field of Econo-physics still fascinates me. There are whole journals devoted to answering economic questions using physics. Seems almost as silly as economists trying to solve physics problems using economics.

I have two friends that started doing PhD's in physics, switched to economics believing they would use physics tools to revolutionize economics, but wound up getting "mostly" assimilated by the economics toolset.
