My point (that you seem to agree) is that on the average, economists are much more fiscally conservative than the average person.
Everyone supports some goverment intervention (Including Friedman himself), that's not really the point.
Yeah, there is Stiglitz that is a liberal (he seems to support any liberal, no matter what said liberal said - see Naomi Klein) but even he is not a commie or something like that.
Usually he is more of a centrist guy.
An example of how economists usually are more conservative than regular people is on trade. There are very few economists that support trade barriers. Even Stiglitz himself always criticize the trade policy of rich countries.
