ASK A PROVOCATIVE QUESTION ABOUT COMMON DOGMA
QUORA provides questions to prompt students to write essays on economics. I found this one HERE
QUORA’s question today is:
How is it that by the 21st century the invisible hand of "the marketplace" has been unable to come up with a decent economic model to support it or to "close the sale" sufficiently diminish the controversy over what represents an acceptable product?
Economics offers a vague body of theory that inspires little enough support for any proposed model that is sufficiently persuasive to achieve any great consensus beyond broad, stubborn disagreement and often bitter controversy.
I found this interesting as an exercise but I have no idea what they are asking for in their answer or what criteria they use to score the respondents efforts.
The statement below the question is equally interesting.
