Considering the opinion expressed and that it is obviously not new to him, I would suppose that Mr. Taylor already has that much needed thick skin.

looks like this is going to be an awesome resource, but he needs an RSS. until then, i’ll just have to add him to my favorites/bookmarks.

This is great! Thanks for pointing this out, Russ.

His first post is on his recent WSJ article. I found that somewhat odd because it was directed mainly at the stimulus checks that were sent out, which lots of large-stimulus proponents were saying from the beginning wouldn’t work. So he tried to slip in a critique of stimulus in general with an analysis of a very specific component of the stimulus. Either way, Taylor is always a very welcome voice on monetary policy. Now there’s one more blog I have to track :-P

Taylor cites Samuelson and Concentration Camp Krugman among those blaming freedom for the consequences of interference with it, as socialists have always blamed others for the consequences of their own policies, the Communists blaming counterrevolutionary saboteurs and wreckers, capitalists in the woodpile, and, the Nazis, the Jews. Now we can add economists to the list, the other economists, the real ones. For these people are not economists, but, as Ludwig von Mises so aptly described them, fabulists, tellers of tall tales.

His blog is certainly poignant, especially his series of slides projecting the national debt and annual deficits going forward. That’s a great illustration of the coming crisis that the polticians are creating (a “government bubble”?), and how we need to restore fiscal sanity to government ASAP.

Taylor’s comments are pithy and perspicacious. First time I’ve seen in print the distinction between economics and policy.
One quibble: given Krugman et. al. isn’t it likely that the failed policy was in fact proposed and supported by an economist who subscribes to failed economic policy?

No RSS link on his blog. Fail.
