Economists and politics

I really enjoyed this rant from John Cochrane regarding economists as public intellectuals and, more broadly, about how economists should engage with everyday partisan politics. I am always a bit astounded that any economist is willing to identify in any but the most grudging way with either of the major legacy parties.

I would have found it interesting why you enjoyed it so.

I found it sad, Perhaps Cochrane is punchdrunk after his bouts with Messrs Kruggers and De Long
