57% of Leading Economists are Not Worried About an Inflationary Wage/Price Spiral

8% are. 23% are uncertain or have no opinion.

I really like this IGM panel (check out the roster — pretty damned impressive, or at least credentialed), but I wish they didn’t post such wishy-washy, softball questions. I post this one because it’s not.

The one I’d really like them to ask:

A modern, prosperous country taxing 40% of GDP is likely to grow significantly more slowly over the long term than one taxing 30% of GDP.

True or false?
