Professor Peter Morici argues in his commentary "Democracy, not capitalism, fails the middle class" (May 1) that "extreme positions for and against intervention ... too often block ... prudent regulation." I would argue that economists, not democracy, are primarily to blame for failing to speak with one voice when offering advice to elected leaders.
Even the most ridiculous policy proposals include economists among their advocates.
