Boudreaux Gets It

Prof. Don Boudreaux, one of the two main bloggers at CafeHayek, has this to say today at the Pittsburgh Tribune:

So the economist bent on advising politicians will either too often find that her time and effort have been wasted, or she will, step by step, be corrupted into offering only economic-sounding apologies for policies that are politically expedient.

There’s a far better use of whatever time the economist devotes to communicating with noneconomists — namely, challenging the many popular misconceptions that distort the general public’s understanding of the way economies work.

In my experience, Boudreaux hits the nail on the head.
