is civic literacy fiscal literacy?

From The Monkey Cage, I took the American Civic Literacy quiz. It’s tough but interesting – I got 100% right, which puts me slightly ahead of John Sides and Mike Munger. Which is kind of ironic, because Munger is a libertarian, indeed formerly a libertarian candidate for governor of NC (I don’t know Sides), and the quiz shows a marked libertarian bias in questions 25 on. Frankly there are empirical and theoretical disputes about some of the claims, so one has to sort of engage in temporary suspension of disbelief in order to figure out what answers they’re looking for! It’s not that hard to figure out, though, since the very fact that 8 of 33 questions are fiscal in character.
