Imagine if we did this in areas other than economics.
We could get some complete dumbass who thinks the earth is flat, and act as if he is the world's foremost expert on the solar system.
We could get someone who believe diseases are caused by evil spirits whose treatment requires leeches and make him surgeon general.
I wish I could set up a two island nations, one with Ron Paul in charge, and one with Paul Krugman in charge.
10 years later, Krugmanland would be in ruin, with even the tumbleweeds trying to cast themselves into the sea, preferably with all the Keynesian scum that spew this drivel out day after day.
