Home / S. Sumner: Money Illusion / UK endorsements

UK endorsements

Summary:
Liberal Democrats > Conservatives >>>>>>> Labour In England and Wales vote for Liberal Dems where they have a chance, otherwise vote Conservative. In Scotland, replace Liberal Democrats with Scottish nationalists. I presume the Northern Irish will vote for their tribe. Wales? I know nothing about Wales. I expect the Conservatives to win. Will Brexit be delayed long enough for Bryan Caplan to keep his perfect record intact? PS. Tony Blair is a sad reminder of what happens when you are in office at the wrong time. Imagine if Bill Clinton had been in office during 9/11 and also the collapse of the housing boom. Tags:

Scott Sumner
Scott B. Sumner is Research Fellow at the Independent Institute, the Director of the Program on Monetary Policy at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University and an economist who teaches at Bentley University in Waltham, Massachusetts. His economics blog, The Money Illusion, popularized the idea of nominal GDP targeting, which says that the Fed should target nominal GDP—i.e., real GDP growth plus the rate of inflation—to better "induce the correct level of business investment".
