I see lots of links to Arnold Kling’s blog. He’s a libertarian-leaning economist, and I’m sure he has lots of important things to say. But this paragraph in an otherwise interesting post on health care in Massachusetts illustrates why I don’t regularly read his blog:
Of course, no one on the Left believes that. The core belief there is that experts know best, and that experts are only thwarted by evil corporations and stupid conservatives. The notion that no expert knows very much, and that the evolution of market processes produces better outcomes, is too threatening to contemplate.
Perhaps the ease with which he dismisses me makes it easier for me to dismiss him.
