Economists Agree and Agree to Disagree

There's a joke that if you put three economists in a room to debate an issue you'll get at least six different opinions on the matter. Economists don't agree on much, but according to this survey there are quite a few issues where there seems to be a general consensus. Areas of agreement include the elimination of tariffs, subsidies, as well as the benefits of Walmart and markets for human organs.

This survey keeps coming up at the meetings so I thought I'd take the liberty of posting it

EDIT: Now with working link.
