  •  Ahh, but does R-R cause neoliberalism or v.v.? (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    I usually assume that neoliberalism causes educated economists to produce agenda-driven post-hoc revisionist propaganda; but maybe it's the other way around.

    The counter-theory would be that neoliberal economics is created or produced by an accumulation of poorly-executed studies with flawed methodologies, theories, analysis, and data.

    Until we have a chance to study the causal relationships, further, it may be best to avoid taking anything from any neoliberal "scholars" seriously.

    Our cause: a More Perfect Union.
