Tyler Cowen has Tyrone, his alter ego. Lately I’ve really been wanting to claim Matt Welch as mine. Whether it’s economic policy by metaphor, the trillion-dollar stimulus, good news and bad news on trade, or his hilariously witty I CAN HAZ BEEMER?, Matt has been putting words to my thoughts.
And he’s done so again this morning with his post debunking all of the straw men that the political elites are using to rush us through to a consensus on large amounts of debt-financed government spending. Keep bringin’ it, Matt.
