Very, very cool.

I wonder what conclusion we should draw from the apparent disinterest of contemporary cartoonists to caricaturise economists.

Not sure this is right, but it's a hypothesis: 19th and early 20th century economists were much more the "public intellectual", in Parliament and so on, than today. Maybe that meant the public knew, and could contest, the economic arguments more readily than they can today.
