One purpose of this analysis is to help policymakers determine what constitutes an expert. The introduction covers the increasing reliance of both the general public and policy makers on the intuition and advice provided by experts. These concepts are explained more in depth by examination of the definition of an expert, specialized knowledge, credibility, and other variables.
