The Dangerous Ideological Bias of Economists

From the collection Learn Economics at Home

Economists claim they are not biased or ideological, but research by economist Mohsen Javdani tells another story. Javdani discovered that 82% of economists claim that statements and arguments should be evaluated on the content only, but the results of the study show the exact opposite. Javdani also learned that female economists are 40% less biased than their male counterparts. It’s time economists learn to recognize their own biases.
