“High information” people ignore evidence if it conflicts with their preferred
narrative all the time.
Sometimes evidence is wrong or misinterpreted – sometimes a theory is needed to
put evidence into context. That’s not ignoring evidence, that’s seeking even
more information and a better framework to understand it. Of course, I can
just respond to an assertion with another..
And that there could be a backlash to internationalization doesn’t mean it is
rational, just that someone seeking to advance an open economy should have been
aware it was a political risk and prepared better to avoid it.
