  • Can Conservatives Face Up To Their Dead Ideas?
    Commentary about a Bruce Bartlett piece in Politico specifically in the realm if a constant push for tax cuts is responsible and/or effective.
  • What Are Chicago’s Economists Thinking?
    Apparently the freshwater economists are going crazy. Brad in this article points to some of the reactions.
  • Apparently Obama is a Serious Player with respect to republicans on the stimulus package:  (http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/28/us/politics/28obama.html)

    “This was not a drive-by P.R. stunt, and I actually thought it might be,” said Representative Zach Wamp, Republican of Tennessee. “It was a substantive, in-depth discussion with our conference, and he’s very effective.”
    “He knows that the debt and the deficit are huge long-term problems as well,” Mr. Wamp said, “and he made a compelling case. He sounded, frankly, a lot like a Republican.”

    This only increases my concerned that Republicans are not participating in the process purely on political concerns.
