"Most of the people on this list are economists. This is their profession.
Most have degrees in economics, belong to professional associations of
economists, and teach economics. 

In short, they are economists -- whether they like that designation or not.

Most of those same people are Marxists.

That makes them, ipso faco, Marxist economists. "

No, it doesn't. It makes them (should make them) Marxist critics of
economics. And of course the same applies to sociology, philosophy etc. 

Nice one, Rakesh.
