Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The OECD is a big set-up producing different kinds of work that do not always fall conveniently into what could be called a "line". In general, it pleads for "business-friendly" practices, and one of its productions to that end is an EPL index ranking countries according to their EPL-ness (ranking that the authors of this piece criticize).

Is the OECD science or propaganda? You tell me.

From my conversations with Economics graduate students a couple of years ago it was also hard to figure out whether academic economics was science or propaganda.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
