Profession Providing fiscal advice to the President of Earth
First appearance Three Hundred Big Boys

Voodoo Economists are a group of civil servants who advise the President of Earth on important fiscal matters using a combination of empirical study of the economy and black magic (or so their name implies).

In 3004, Earth struck an unexpected fortune when it's forces, under the command of Zapp Brannigan, defeated Tarantulon 6. The Voodoo Economists told President Nixon that the best way to use the money would be to give each citizen of Earth a 300 dollar tax rebate, so that they would spend it and revitalize the economy.

Behind the Scenes Edit

The name Voodoo Economists comes from Voodoo Economics, a mocking term for the fiscal policies of Ronald Reagan during the 1980s from more moderate Republicans, such as George H. W. Bush during the 1980 Republican Primaries, who felt "Reaganomics" (as it was called) went too far.
