From the Devil's Dictionary of Social Theory

social science, n., The study of society without an understanding of money. Traditionally, it is the business of accounting for social ills without causing embarrassment to land holders. From the early twenty-first century, it has existed mainly as a consulting product, offering putative solutions to social problems that imply no cost to the unearned wealth of billionaires. In general, any description of society will be deemed "scientific" if it cannot be used to support arguments for a universal basic income funded by a single tax on land value.
