also an insightful caution for sloppy historical empiricists.

It looks like economics is more exacting than one things, in that it demands the most objective perspective possible.  What would you say this is?

Not sure what you're asking here.

Austrian school economics is actually "objective" in that it recognizes that everyone has their subjective interests, desires and values, including the acting agents within any government. Any acting agent. It's subjectivist in that sense, so it involves a subjective theory of value, money, time preference as well.
