Vince Cable - Democracy is a terrible way to make decisions

Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    (Original post by Mathemagicien)
    There used to be lots of criticism, back in the (worst) days of the Euro Crisis, when people were complaining about economists and central bankers making decisions about printing money and stuff, when they were unelected. How the hell can you expect the public to elect a competant economist? It seems some people want to democratise every aspect of life. Some day there will be calls to democratise science - maybe some day we'll have referendums on whether or not evolution occurred.
    We've already democratised science. David Nutt got sacked for suggesting reclassifying cannabis because the public were outraged.
