Not Noring’s intent but does help explain the animosity of those not in the career paths who became Trump supports why hey did. Here clearly scientists are assocaited with the elite, the same elite that supports and defends the rest of the elite.
Quote is from Noring , Economists and the Powerful
What we have seen up until now is how funding, fame, Nobel MemorialPrizes and resources were allocated to those who have generated the economic theories that most furthered the aims of the scientific technological elite. A very important part of the mechanisms used was to control what information and research is held to be reliable and whatis to be excluded as at best unorthodox “fringe theories.”
