Economists give thumbs-down to W
I didn't get my Economist (the world's best newspaper, by far, if only for the droll captions) this week, but Sean Aday at the Gadfly did.
He points to and discusses an Economist poll of economists, asking them to rate Bush economic policies. If you are an American out of work or without health insurance (or both), you knew this already, but the marks are almost uniformly bad for W.
Morever, the 56 economists agree that Kerry would be far better for the US economy. Go figure: 56 economists polled by a right-of-center financial newspaper prefer the guy that W calls a "tax and spender".
The raw numbers make good reading, too.
