Yes, but these people who can make a difference are surrounded by so many layers of buffering to prevent reality seeping in that they are effectively sealed off from it.

then having the ability to forensically analyse the trail from advice to destruction and realise they're being lied to; well at that point they'll find themselves re-shuffled or sacked or have an aircraft accident (just kidding folks).

A large part of the problem is that for current leaders to accept that the economic theories they have been faithfully attempting to implement are actually harmful and only serve the very wealthy, they would have to accept that they are accomplices. Most would not like to think that of themselves, so they cling to the old theories, by the lights of which they remain virtuous.

As the Dutch said while fighting the Spanish: "It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."
