Epstein on Obama's Immoderation

Richard Epstein hoped his former collegue from the University of Chicago was the intelligent centrist his fans said he was.

He isn't. And neither are his appointees.
Exhibit A is Christina Romer's recent Wall Street Journal column, "Putting Americans Back to Work." Romer heads the president's Council of Economic Advisers. Her column rates as a bit of transparent propaganda that belongs in a fan magazine, not a serious newspaper. If she wrote it of her own volition, she should be fired for economic incompetence. If, as seems more likely, the White House wrote it for her, or told her just what to say, she should resign in protest.
