In Praise of Ideological Openness

GMU Working Paper in Economics No. 11-42

Abstract:     
One’s ideological views – that is, the pattern of positions one tends to take on important public-policy issues – run deep and change little. Inevitably they involve commitments and judgments about the most important things. Just as we value disclosure of vested interests, we value disclosure of one’s ideological tendencies. I elaborate some virtues of ideological openness.
