Dani Rodrik: Culpem os Economistas
Pior do que as falhas dos mercados, ou as falhas de governo? Examinem as falhas dos economistas. Segundo o professor de Harvard, Dani Rodrik: "Economics’ richness has not been reflected in public debate because economists have taken far too much license. Instead of presenting menus of options and listing the relevant trade-offs – which is what economics is about – economists have too often conveyed their own social and political preferences. Instead of being analysts, they have been ideologues, favoring one set of social arrangements over others".
