Am I wrong to think that economics would be a better and far more solid field of scientific research if more economists were out in the field producing work like Emily?

Hayek became an economist doing field research on rent control in Vienna.

Coase became an economist doing field research on business organizations and regulations "in the wild".

All these math jocks might become actual economists if they were required to do something similar, as part of their Ph.D. requirement.
