Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I know.  It's a real pain in the ass to maintain integrity in economics while diving into day-to-day political battles, because it's almost never clear-cut.  The gas-tax fight was one exception, and I was pleased by the reaction from economists across the political spectrum.  But that's very rare.

It's funny.  The pundits will occasionally bring up Harry Truman's statement that "All my economic advisors say, 'One the one hand _, and on the other hand _.'  Someone give me a one-handed economist."  And I always think, "Yeah, and we have a word for one-handed economists: Frauds."

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
