If God exists, the deity must be smiling. For behind the high fives and hoopla over the Higgs boson, there's a growing doubt that we are anywhere near to understanding the nature of reality. These doubts arise from two major sources.
The award of the Nobel Prize in physics generally creates a mental blur for most people, since no one can comprehend the current state of physics without training in advanced mathematics. This year was somewhat different, thanks to a nickname.
No one can predict what practical applications can come out of the basic scientific research being done today, but history shows that without basic science we can expect little human progress.
It is the height of irony that at the same time the SSC perished, the community of academic economists was finally comprehending, in detail, what actually causes economies to grow and prosper.
