Implied Dissent

Thank you

Note that points 1 and 2 are about political philosophy rather than economics. Economists can have opinions about these matters, but our opinions are not much better or worse by virtue of our training than those of anyone else.
This is something that often bugs me. People who are experts in one area often act or are treated as if they are experts in other areas. That doesn't that they have nothing to offer in those other areas, but they and we need to keep in mind the limits of their (possible) superiority.
