Economics Professors' Voting, Policy Views, Favorite Economists, and Frequent Lack of Consensus
A sample of 299 U.S. economics professors responded to our 2010 survey. This paper reports on their views on 17 policy issues. We relate attitude toward liberalization to political-party voting. Abortion and occupational licensing are among the questions novel to the survey. We also look at gender, favorite economists, the frequent lack of consensus on issues, and the percent of economics professors who firmly support the principles of free enterprise. The instrument, dataset, and all analyses are provided online (link).
