Economists Go Prime Time Against the Stimulus

Tonight's edition of ABC News's 20/20 has a segment in which host John Stossel talks with 18 economists (including yours truly) about why stimulus spending is a lousy idea.  (Alas, although I'm in the group that Stossel spoke with, none of my individual comments make it into the final telecast version.)  But the comments of my fellow economists that do make it are terrific.

Tune in!  10-11pm, EDT; the segment with we economists is one of six segments during the hour-long program.

An article about the views of we 18 economists can be found here; it's co-authored by Stossel and my former GMU student Andrew Kirell.
