Sociology has become a collection of conceits and fantasies that have no basis in reality. It's not a real science.

It's because economics is about managing resources, running businesses and countries, while sociology is about finding an easy major and pretending to be important

It's either about Sex, Money, or Power.

Darwin Biology > Smith Economics > James Psychology

Sociology is about classifying the trappings of extended phenotypes while denying evolution.

I think economics is more successful than sociology because of instances where changing economic policy had obvious benefits to the whole country, usually defeating inflation. In anglo-american countries the credit was awarded when monetarism appeared to work, although I believe that economists think they have got better ideas nowadays.

In Germany, they have something called Ordoliberalism, which started out as a reaction to hyperinflation in the Weimar Republic (when you look it up, don't stop at the bland Wikipedia article - see e.g. https://www.economist.com/europe/2015/05/09/of-rules-and-order) This is completely alien to most other brands of economics. It is very interesting that the EU is trying to run a unified currency - the Euro - when economist trained in their dominant country - Germany - see their subject in a completely different way from economists in all of the other countries.
