1. If the Budget Debate Had a Nate Silver by Dean Baker

    November 27, 2012 by adminpete

    “While we did have both spending and tax cuts as part of stimulus packages, these were explicitly temporary efforts to boost the economy. Had the economy not collapsed, there would have been no reason for this policy. In short, a Nate Silver of the budget debates might force people on both sides to acknowledge that the large short-term budget deficits are simply the result of the economic downturn caused by the collapse of the housing bubble.”
