Brad DeLong is an Idiot
By Tom Smith

Just imagine where we would be if Brad DeLong were making economic policy in the 1980's or now, for that matter. Tax cuts do not promote growth. Reagan's economic policies just promoted inequality. We could use more such failures.

As for Nicaragua, I count it a great success. One less Cuba to worry about. We still need to get the story on why the Nicaraguans voted the Sandanistas out, if they were so wonderful. CIA conspiracy maybe?

DeLong wants to give Gorbachev credit for liberating the USSR apparently. Unbelievably dim. Talk about being trapped inside the box.
