2. "doesn’t have the blinders of a model-based view of the world"

No, he has the blinders of "my opinion and my cherry-picked supporting anecdotes" view of the world. which has been the GOP operating system since (at least) Reagan, so no wonder he's a Mitty.

"and advantage and a disadvantage"? Absolutely, as long as you're not concerned with coming up with solutions based on all the facts. A bigger advantage is being rich and well-connected, as well as the (not to put too fine a point on it) model that "successful" means "made gobs of money" to the exclusion of all else.

The disadvantage is there is no internal check against self-serving claptrap.
