Hvis man var journalist og skulle skrive om økonomi

Jeg har en eksamen i komparativ økonomi onsdag. Det er undskyldningen for den lave aktivitet på bloggen (læs: INGEN aktivitet)

Delong har fundet 12 punkter som en journalist som skal skrive om økonomi bør holde sig for øje, og ligeså nogle punkter en økonom som skal udtale sig til en journalist skal holde sig for øje. Jeg synes alle der har bare den mindste interesse for politik skal læse bare dele af hvad der bliver skrevet.

Specielt nr. 2 er jeg vild med

Never write "economists disagree." No matter how limited your space or time, never write "economists disagree." Write WHY economists disagree. An expert who cannot explain why other experts think differently isn't much of an expert. A reporter who can't fit an explanation of where the disagreement lies into the assigned space isn't much of a journalist. A journalist who cannot figure out the source of the disagreement is a journalist who is working for whoever has the best-funded public-relations firm--and is working for them for free.
