I agree – The U.S. Economic Policy Debate Is a Sham

The IGM Forum has some really interesting stuff. Below each poll you can look through the responses from each economist and see where they included links, etc.


The U.S. Economic Policy Debate Is a Sham – Bloomberg.

Watching Democrats and Republicans hash out their differences in the public arena, it’s easy to get the impression that there’s a deep disagreement among reasonable people about how to manage the U.S. economy.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

In reality, there’s remarkable consensus among mainstream economists, including those from the left and right, on most major macroeconomic issues. The debate in Washington about economic policy is phony. It’s manufactured. And it’s entirely political.
