What Do Economists Know Anyway?

A gem from Clinton's interview this last weekend:

George Stephanopoulos began his televised interview with Senator Hillary Clinton by asking if she could name a single economist who supports her plan for a gas tax suspension.

She did not. "I'm not going to put in my lot with economists," she said on ABC's "This Week" program. A few moments later, she added, "Elite opinion is always on the side of doing things that really disadvantages the vast majority of Americans."

Does the dismissal of expert opinion remind you of anyone?
