I f a particular expert abuses his position, the other people in his field will instantly see this because they can tell the difference between a good idea and a bad idea. An economist who claims that he is helping the economy while actually just helping his friends will fool the general public, but he cannot fool all the economists in the country. The people responsible for picking the economics leadership will be qualified to see through self-serving lies. An elected leader who pushes corrupt policies will be quickly recognized and removed. He will be exposed as unmeritorious, and no expert will ever trust him again. Experts don’t care about speeches or slogans, and can’t be fooled that easily.
