Is Atif Mian possible?? Please write complete sentence rather than testing one’s sense of humor!
There is a long list of economists of different background and ages in IK’s Economic Advisory Council. Economists are more like the philosopher who compete on pushing their own and demolishing others idea to justify the job. It is the only profession (if it is a profession) in which two economists can get Nobel Prize for saying the opposite thing. The only threat that older Pakistani Desi economists in the council will have is from newly inducted yuppie bright economist from abroad. Some will then by force of nature turn politician in the committee rather staying an economist. I do not discount anything and I may be dead wrong here but it is good for raising the employment rate.
