First, poll all of the economists to see what they think, says Scott Adams.
I think we would all agree that having better information won’t influence most voters. If every economist in the survey somehow miraculously supported the same candidate’s positions, it wouldn’t change the votes of hardcore Democrats or Republicans. But in a close election such as this one, independent voters, who I call the Rational Few, end up making the decision. I am hopeful that for that influential group, better information will lead to better decisions. If the Rational Few are indeed influenced by a poll of economists, and it tips the election, economists will forever be polled before national elections. Problem solved.
And what is more, he is doing the poll and will get back to us with results. Stay tuned.
