Political decisions, and the public policies which result in them, are often based on little more than hunch and guesswork, combined with political bias. For example, it is rare to find a pragmatic view of the market which takes account of when it can be effective, and when relying on the market will have less desirable consequences. Policies on such matters as crime, housing and immigration, with serious social consequences, are often plucked out of the air, with no apparent effort made either to draw on existing knowledge, or to investigate before acting.
