Value of dissent for analysis & decision making – Leonora Risse quotes RBG in EP124

In Episode 124 of Economics Explored, Australian Women in Economics Network Chair Dr Leonora Risse reflects on the value of diversity and dissent for analysis and decision making. In the conversation, Leonora mentions that, in a 2019 journal article, she quoted late US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the importance of dissent. RBG had said:

“There is nothing better than an impressive dissent to lead the author of the majority opinion to refine and clarify her initial circulation.”

Here’s a clip from Episode 124 with Leonora featuring a discussion about the value of having diverse views in economic research and policy advice.
