Do they have any respect for the work that we do?
What do mathematicians think about economists?

They think of game theory, auctions, market design, etc. as nifty problems for clever undergrads, the same way they think of theoretical comp sci.
They couldn’t care less about the rest.I'm a mathematician, and this sounds about right. There is an added sense that not only are you dummies, but you are sellouts who make more money than us for solving these toy problems.
That said, you do manage a much more amusing website than we have. Probably due to the fact (which should be added to our list) that most economists are aholes.

Macroeconomists make significantly more money than you because they are essential to the functioning of various macro sectors in our economy, while their such talent is irreplaceable.
As for microeconomics and econometricians, you may be right.

As for microeconomics and econometricians, you may be right.Yes, it is understood that they make money by having these essential functions. However, mathematicians are confident that they could easily perform these functions themselves after a couple weeks of selfstudy; hence regarding economists as sellouts. For that matter, probably most of these functions could be performed by trained monkeys equipped with "Stata", whatever that is.
Anyway, I am not saying I endorse these opinions; just reporting the consensus view.

Basically none. There is the "math jobs wiki", but no discussion, literally just list of job candidates. And I think it's dead now even for that. There's also Mathoverflow, but it too has stringest antifun policies.
