Abstract: Robust political economy built on worst case assumptions must carefully state joint hypotheses as the best or worst case nature of individual assumptions can hinge critically on these joint assumptions. Where benevolence is assumed, ignorance is the appropriate worst-case informational assumption; however, when planner benevolence is in doubt, a planner endowed with calculative efficacy is the appropriate joint worst-case assumption.
