But there are plenty of academics that don't work at think tanks.

Academics who work at government institutions or private universities are also very vulnerable to pressure from their colleagues, university authorities and funding sources.
I would consider an expert to be someone with several years of graduate-level formal schooling in their specialty.

I donít think you mean just any graduate-level formal schooling (that would make someone with a PhD in theology an expert on how to optimize an afterlife experience).






Surely even fields that are not reputable do have experts? There might be two questions, who is skilled on what skilltree and whether that skilltree ought to inform your decisions. People lying about their ability on a trusted skilltree or having legimate ability in a suspect skilltree are the two main hazards.

I don't perceive this as being a bias unique to professors. Everyone has conformity pressure within their group.
