Policy seriousness

NPR (!) provides a list of six really smart policies that almost all economists would agree on.  A good way to test the seriousness of your favorite politician or debating partner is to test their views on these six questions.

Most politicians, as the title of the article suggests, will fail on all six. That's a problem; in particular it is a problem in the design of our mechanisms of social choice.
