Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
European Tribune - What happened to the scientific process?
Morgan Stanley's chief econom propagand-ist

For that is what bank economists are. Media chaff.

The WSJ too, since the early '70s, has been devoted to ultra-liberal propaganda.

As for peer review and scientific process, that is a serious problem. The steady privatisation of research over the last decades, the hold of big money on access to funding, are probably the main issue. Like media folk, scientists don't want to step on the wrong toes. The notion that science is free from ideology and politics is a fantasy, since scientific practice is subject to power relations.
