Policy debate

Are long term policies in the sector you know most about quite right? Or are there issues that would benefit from a technical airing before being put to the vote? Could long term policies be improved, or altered to suit the 21st century better? Put your case here and try it out anonymously to see what other economists think.

    Perhaps only people under 50 should be given a vote, since over 50s won’t live to see most of the benefits.

      But the over-50s still pay the costs. And some may value part of the benefits, if they live long enough, or all of the benefits simply as their legacy to future generations. Indeed the over-50s are some of the most philanthropic groups in society.
