Fragments of wisdom

Yet economists talk much more about trade than they do about health care policy, because they think they know something about it in a way the laity don’t…don’t let economist’s tendency to overemphasize their areas of expertise distort your view.

I don’t agree with every claim in this Krugman piece, least of all his defense of you-know-who, but I think that psychoanalysis of economists is spot on.
