Smart words from Larry Kotlikoff on why economists should not be in the business of endorsing presidential candidates.
He does undermine his own point a bit later in the piece by making political statements (with which I agree, though that is not the point) about the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
Full disclosure: I was offered the opportunity to sign the "Economists for Romney" statement and declined.

It's really quite easy.
