I would have thought that the "Style Manual" of The New York Times would have declared that "Hocus Pocus" was unacceptable language in the "Newspaper of Record". I would have been wrong.
Nobel Laureate Dr Paul Krugman uses it here.
Maybe because it is a "blog" the use of the term is acceptable.
On the other hand, it is Dr Krugman and his incantations reminds one more of theology than science.
Hat tip to Ann Althouse for the article. The disappointment is all mine.
