An important point for economists during election season

You are not voting for an economist-in-chief.

You are voting for a representative of the people that will lead the country, and there are a finite number of alternatives. This representative has to talk to real people and make an impression on them. His job is not to deliver brown-bag seminar presentations.

This may bother you.

Fine. But recognize there's a difference.

  1. I think what economists need to remember is that the internet is forever. If they say unprincipled things in support of one candidate or another, it may come back to bite them.
