thanks to "mostly economics blog" for pointing out this excellent article by Alan Blinder on the "clash of civilisations" between economists and policy makers. Married folks will particularly enjoy the metaphor of policy advice as being like a good marriage. We are in the process in Ireland and elsewhere of thinking through the role economics and economists should play in policy.
