Understanding Science

Has Science become so complex that even an Einstein can’t understand it?

In economics, many basic facts, such as prices, have an origin which isn’t completely understood by any single person, no matter how bright or well informed, because none of those people have access to all the hidden knowledge that determines those prices.

By contrast, until quite recently the complete justification for even the most complex scientific facts could be understood by a single person. ….

Science is no longer so simple; many important scientific facts now have justifications that are beyond the comprehension of a single person.

So do we need a market to aggregate scientific information?
