Scott Adams' (Dilbert) Survey of Economists

The creator of Dilbert paid for his own poll of economists to ask whether a McCain or Obama presidency would be better for the economy.
This summer I found myself wishing someone would give voters useful and unbiased information about which candidate has the best plans for the economy.

Then I realized that I am someone, which is both inconvenient and expensive. So for once I asked not what my country could do for me.

At considerable personal expense, I commissioned a survey of over 500 economists, drawn from a subset of the members of the American Economic Association, a nonpolitical group, some of whose members had agreed in advance to be surveyed on economic questions.
