Early last month, I wrote an article for The Federalist on job creation.
I used that opportunity to document that there is a serious problem with jobs under Obama, and I explained that the problem existed in part because the President was intervening with so-called stimulus schemes.
The far better approach is for government to “get out of the way.”
Though that’s not really correct. I want changes in government policy. Indeed, major changes. But those policy changes would involve less government, whereas Obama pushed major changes in the other direction.
I took this discussion to the next level in this debate on C-Span.
My opponent, Ross Eisenbrey of the Economic Policy Institute, was my mirror image.
He wanted more spending and I urged less spending.
He called for more intervention and I advocated less intervention.
We would probably even disagree about the answer to 2 + 2 = ?.
