Other academic disciplines than economics have a lot to say about the economy. Why? Because these days, academic disciplines largely organize by way of thinking, not so much by topic of investigation. That means that economists are not the only ones studying the economy. Other disciplines also study the economy, and have a lot of interesting things to say about how it works.
