How do 'elected officials' do against the average joes?


Check here.


The results here are excellent. We may not agree on everything but most here have a good grasp of history and mechanics of government and economics.


But look at how the 'professionals' do on this test. The elected officials. The public beats them on most questions. But some questions that are missed by a majority of elected officials is down right scary.


From the link above:


"Only 32% can properly define the free enterprise system, and only 41% can identify business profit as “revenue minus expenses.”"


Add the International Trade question (30%) and the average correct answer on 3 basic economic questions is 34%.


The kicker is question 19 - Free Markets vs. Centralized Planning - 10% correct by the elected officials.
