  1. “The Reason Americans Don’t Trust Experts” has nothing to do with economists and still less to do with the past forty years. It has to do with attitudes toward the sociology of education that go back to 17th Century England.

    Although you just repeated the NY Times headline about the article “A Black Marxist Scholar Wanted to Talk About Race. It Ignited a Fury”, as I understand the article the headline was misleading. It should have been: “A Black Marxist Scholar Wanted to Talk About Class. It Ignited a Fury.”
