Economics and politics are meant for each; otherwise, either solely on their own is just a vain pursuit. Devoid of contribution to the society at large. Economics devolves into an intellectual pursuit, politics becomes an exercise in hegemony. Economics must be a science and a philosophy for action (moral philosophy). Can't say much on politics since I am not trained in political science. There may be a strong argument and basis for the intermarriage between economics and politics, personified in Plato's Philosopher Kings. More recent incarnations of them can be found in the captains of industry and some of the illustrious robber barons of the past. Where after a lifetime of capitalistic pursuits and lobbying in politics some have settled down to a quiet existence as philosophers and philanthropists. These have opted for a sequential switch of roles between economics and politics and not a coexistence between the two.
