Ideological through and through, because economics is joined at the hip with political economy, and, in fact, used to be called political economy. Political economic is, of course, joined at the hip with politics and politics is about power, hence, class structure and power. This implies that policy is an area that is deeply ideological and value-laden, and political economy informs and influences policy. Ergo, politics and and the disagreements over politics are largely values-based, hence ideological.

"It's the assumptions, stupid." And the assumptions are based on normative presumptions.

So much for value-free economics
