I don’t disagree with any of that. My point was only that current state does not represent a downtrend in economics education, which might then be used to explain societal attitude changes over the last 10 years (as described by Bi_3).


Hey man, I was just repeating what I heard. I claim no expertise in this area

This guy gets it:

Quote:
"If we as a Democratic Party are going to move from a minority at every level that is dedicated to resistance, to a majority that is capable of governing, we have got to move from grievance to optimism," Coons said in a speech in Washington. "And we've got to abandon a politics of anxiety that is characterized by wild-eyed proposals and instead deliver ideas and practical solutions."

"Instead of having something that makes a Twitter hashtag and gets you on Rachel Maddow and fires people up, we need to have something that fires people up and is a policy position we can actually defend."

"Forty percent of voters self-identify as pragmatic or moderate. We cannot abandon them," he warned.
