The president of Hillsdale College writes on the question of rule, or governance, by experts. He notes, especially, the paradox of expertise: To become proficient in one area of knowledge tends to prevent proficiency in other areas. Thus, to be the greatest epidemiologist in the world, for example, is likely to come at the expense of being a good economist.
I see no easy way to resolve the paradox, but one thing each of us can do is avoid expecting or wanting too much from government.
