I think at some point in the next century - possibly the next quarter century - psychology is going to explode all over politics and economics, and there may be an outbreak of sanity after that.

I just fear it will land in marketing.

Psychology is already heavily used in marketing and advertising.  Go to any Marketing department, start pontificating about "rational consumers" and watch them explode into laughter.  Psychology will only enter Economics in a big way when Economists decide to stop farting around and study how an economy actually functions.
