What is Bryan's Analysis?
By Arnold Kling
A poll says that two-thirds of the American people think they could do a better job on the economy than Congress.
Forty-four percent (44%) voters also think a group of people selected at random from the phone book would do a better job addressing the nation’s problems than the current Congress, but 37% disagree. Twenty percent (20%) are undecided.
For Bryan’s sake, I wish the poll respondents had been asked whether a group of people selected at random from the American Economic Association would do better or worse than a group selected from the phone book.
