Reason.com finally catches up with me on Romney’s supposed “Economics Expertise”
That Romney might have been a brilliant businessman doesn’t mean he knows beans about economics. Most businesspeople don’t need to know anything about economics outside their field of expertise. Barbers don’t need to know the “Trade Deficit” (and the fact that such an animal is as imaginary as unicorns) to run successful shops. From what he has said about the economy, Romney has outed himself as a clueless Keynesian. The only thing he could do as President to help the economy is to dramatically cut back gov’t spending, an action he has said would “shrink” the economy. The man’s a buffoon.
