HOW THE ECONOMY WORKS

by G.W. Bush, age five

DAY 1: The economy is okay. Have some tax cuts!

DAY 3: The economy is bad.

DAY 5: The economy is super bad. Let's have a war! That should fix things.

DAY 7: The economy is getting better!

DAY 9: The economy is great. Look at all the houses we're building.

DAY 11: The economy is faltering. Time for some more tax cuts!

DAY 13: Oh, no. We built too many houses!

We all just need to get jobs tearing down houses! Y'all act like this is hard.

I am announcing, as part of my presidential platform, a Full Employment for Speed Freaks program where they are all put to work creating long, meaningless lists, destroying the lists, and then rewriting them. It will be a joint venture with Wikipedia.

Which reminds me: I've been feeling the urge to do another friendly-type economics post on why supply side economics doesn't work (e.g., "we built too many houses!").

I have been surprised lately that libertarians have been the source of a majority of the war-is-not-good-for-the-economy arguments I've run into, but I suppose I shouldn't be. They certainly have a keen grasp of opportunity cost, which the neoclassicists in charge now are deliberately ignoring.
