    Economics is the attempt to quantify the aggregate total of human behavior, particularly in the area of exchange. To say that social issues and economics are separate magisteria is a false dichotomy.

    Basically the question is: Would you rather lose your job or lose freedom of speech?

    Economics is a social science, and can technically be labeled a social issue. But do to it's prevalence, it makes sense to give it it's own category, at least in the political sense. Someone might be liberal on social issues, but conservative on economic matters. So the nuance is required.

    I see what you're saying, and I agree that it's a common viewpoint. I personally think that the issue is not as clear cut. To say one is liberal on social issues and conservative on economic issues, at least from the American perspective, is to more say that their viewpoint on social interaction is highly individualistic - that the individual is important and restriction on the interaction between individuals should be as limited as possible. Likewise, someone conservative on social issues and liberal on economic issues is highly collectivistic - the group needs to take care of its own, and the member of the group needs to follow the standards that were agreed upon. Never mind the distinctions between collegiality/democracy and hierarchy/authoritarianism. This is all social science, and these all social issues.
