Debt, Data, Governmentality, and Economists in and out of Government

Over the weekend, I took a look at some of the recent press cycle debate over Biden’s student debt cancellation, and the role that economists and economic reasoning are playing in it. It was also a great chance to re-read Stephanie Mudge, Beth Popp Berman, and Daniel Hirschman. See the thread here and the unrolled version here.
