Most mainstream economists believe X, therefore, so should you?

Mankiw points out that roughly 4/5 of mainstream economists believe tariffs and like policies generally should be eliminated. He always makes a point to flaunt these statistics as if to say, "because most people believe this, so should you." But it's exactly this indoctrination by economists that I think is not only harmful for the profession in that is promotes group-think (or no-think), but it harms our whole society by painting things in black and white, as opposed to the more realistic shades of gray.

Sometimes the major online buy Viagra buy their Viagra online in bulk, which allows Viagra Prescription to sell them a little bit lower than average, but this is not always the case.
