Frankly I'm disappointed in the conservatives on this board. And frankly I'm seriously worried about my economic perspective. I know that I don't "know everything". Particularly when it comes to economics. I have a solid undergraduate background in Econ, strong math skills, and I read broadly. But that's not enough. Historically I've had people be able to successfully challenge my views and make me rethink them and learn in the process. But on this board and basically for the last 15 years or so - Conservatives have not been able to put together a comprehensive argument of any sort that has really undermined any of my economic perspectives. The best evidence is how quickly they resort to name calling. and this concerns me. Because I know I'm not a Nobel economist. That conservative economics is such bad voodoo is dangerous not only to my ability to learn and grow, but also to the ability to balance political forces in the economy. Reagan's voodoo economics may be among the most dangerous economic notions foisted on the USA in a very long time. Because it seems to have eviscerated the ability for conservatives to reason logically and factually about economics - particularly in the broader scales. I wish someone could point me to some conservative economist works that actually make rational sense and don't engage in the "hide the pea" shell game of intentional omission of inconvenient data points (so CATO and Hoover are right out). Please SOMEONE - offer a COGENT and REASONED explanation for what are the weaknesses of the Obama plan.... PLEASE!
