Kudos to Russ Roberts for not pulling any punches in front of Congress.

"You would think economists could answer these questions. Since at least the Great Depression, economists have theorized about what causes the economy to slow down or speed up. We've theorized about unemployment and inflation and whether they're connected. We've theorized about monetary policy, tax policy, and the role of government spending. And economists have tried to find evidence to settle these fundamental questions.

And yet there is little or no consensus for what we should do right now to get the economy going and prevent it from getting worse. I wish it were otherwise. People expect us to know the answers. And plenty of economists claim to have the answers. Yet some of the finest economists in the country, including Nobel laureates, are on opposite sides of the current debate. And each side can cherry-pick data or historical anecdotes in support of its position."
