Yes.
 
p.s. Yes in a don't-waste-your-time-on-them way without remembering why. Here is a good example of why, cross-posted from the Vocabulary Quiz forum.
 
double-talk:

Equating zero wages for no work with a minimum wage for some work is double-talk.

“Unfortunately, the real minimum wage is always zero, regardless of the laws, and that is the wage that many workers receive in the wake of the creation or escalation of a government-mandated minimum wage, because they lose their jobs or fail to find jobs when they enter the labor force. Making it illegal to pay less than a given amount does not make a worker’s productivity worth that amount—and, if it is not, that worker is unlikely to be employed.”

       — Thomas Sowell, Basic Economics: A Citizen's Guide to the Economy

That is, if everyone got a living wage for work there would be many more jobs to go around, since those earners could pay for goods and services employing others. See the definition of money below.
 
....
 
“The purpose of studying economics is not to acquire a set of ready-made answers to economic questions, but to learn how to avoid being deceived by economists.”
                           — Joan Robinson

Here is another tell that Thomas Sowell is mainly a careerist miserymonger. In the "documentary" he is pictured standing next to Milton Friedman, or...
 
Most bad outcomes in society come from government policies. The job of guys like this is to provide cover for bad policies, and also dream them up.
 
Friedman explained candidly how they do it sometimes:
 
“Only a crisis - actual or perceived - produces real change. When that crisis occurs, the actions that are taken depend on the ideas that are lying around. That, I believe, is our basic function: to develop alternatives to existing policies, to keep them alive and available until the politically impossible becomes the politically inevitable.”
 
 
 
Basically you are describing what Friedman and Sowell are criticizing.  So you are not just wrong, you are 180 degrees Bizarro world wrong about what they are about.  Do you even know who they are??{#Stupid}

One public figure who is even always wronger than Steven Pinker is Jordan Peterson, in the way that one infinity can be larger than another infinity. For instance, Pinker never debates someone smarter than he is.
not really sure of your point, given the discussion of these two that you posted.
but I guess peterson could be viewed as wrong if you solely believe in relativism, subjectivism...sure

(and not sure why you posted this in the Recommended Documentaries topic.)

Love Dr. Peterson, but then again I am an evil terrorist.  Speaking of terrorist, I really enjoy listening to this guy as well though I am quite sure that Lebron James knows more than all of these fellows.{#Rolleyes}

They are not complete, but they have some truth that is too often drowned out.
