Check out this ad in the New York Times putting the lie to Obama's claim that "there is no disagreement" about the need for government action to "jumpstart" the economy.
Included are the names of more than 200 academic economists who "do not believe that more government spending is a way to improve economic performance." Included on the list are Nobel prize winners, North Carolina libertarian gubernatorial candidate Mike Munger, and the former Macro professor of yours truly.
Just like the global warming debate, assertions of widespread "consensus" on this topic are highly exaggerated.
Bravo to the Cato Institute for organizing and paying for the ad.
