The politics of economics

"Unfortunately, it is seldom possible to insulate economic judgments from political ones, or to expect complicated economic ‘truths’ to be accepted ‘on their merits’.  Some parts of the argument have gone over the heads of the electorate while others, in the form in which they are adopted…, have been adopted within an egalitarianising framework which makes nonsense of the rest."

Maurice Cowling, Conservative Essays, The Present Position, 1978
