If you are an expert in one area that doesn't necessarily makes you eligible to comment and have a view on everything.  Does it?
People, in general, ask experts and want to know opinion of 'popular' people.
Most of the experts also like to comment on every issue... Who doesn't like a status of celebrity !  There is nothing wrong in it... but my view is experts/celebrities should refrain from speaking what they don't know !

It is very easy to mislead common people... I realized it recently when I listened people commenting about IITs and JEE without having even a slightest idea about that system. You can be an expert, my friend, even a big academician, but that doesn't make you qualified to speak as an authority about a system you just have a theoretical idea ! or no idea at all !
...a romantic author commenting on economy !... a politician deciding curriculum of mathematics !

I even heard that we have army officers with degree in Arts and deputed in DRDO as scientists !... well.. maybe being an officer also makes you a rocket scientist !

... and some people like to comment on everything ! .. well.. some of them also make themselves a fool.
