I just spoke with an economist from the Department of Labor; I needed his help reviewing labor statistics for a story I’m working on.
After some discussion, I couldn’t help but ask if he’d ever read anything by Thomas Sowell, one of my favorite (conservative) economists. He’d never even heard of him.
“He sort of leans to the right,” I explained.
“I don’t,” he said, laughing.
Newsflash: The Department of Labor employs left-leaning economists to explain their data.
