The Economist's poll of economists

I rely on the Economist news magazine for a rational, intelligent - if at times slightly stodgy - conservative perspective. At best, it forces me to venture outside of my left-liberal comfort zone and consider another perspective. At worst, I may sometimes think that they are completely full of shit.

In the latest issue, the Economist presented a poll of ... well, economists. The result may surprise you. It did me (click on the chart to enlarge).

They may be the purveyors of the "dismal science." But can 9 out of 10 economists be wrong?
