John McCain Says That Americans Are Overinsured
GDP and GDI

A Very Good Question

Hilzoy asks:

The Washington Monthly: [W]ho are those eleven economists (7.8% of the total) who think McCain has a better grasp of economics than Obama?

Here is the list of NBER affiliates. The Economist emailed all the Research Associates (RA) it could find--683 of them. 141 answered. (I wasn't one. I answered the survey, but then they dumped my answers for some reason and asked me to resubmit).

At least 7 of the RAs on this list think McCain has a better grasp of economics than Obama.

That is scary.
