I did not misrepresent what you said
Yes, actually you did. Nowhere did I say Summers has “no value as an economic advisor”, or even suggested that.
you do not understand the meaning of the word ‘diversity’.
You confuse diversity with unconventionality. Diversity refers to a group of items, not an individual. A single economist cannot be diverse; a group of economists can be diverse if they are sufficiently different from each other.
No, I did not misunderstand the word ‘diversity’. You defended Biden’s selection of Summers by stating that:
a politician like Mr. Biden deliberately selects a wide spectrum of advisors to provide him with a range of opinions before making a decision
So, what we are talking about here is whether the selection of Summers constitutes a diversification of opinion with respect to Biden or his circle of advisors. Which other economic advisor is Biden consulting with such that the selection of Larry Summers constitutes Biden engaging with a “wide spectrum” of opinion?
