in Myths and Fallacies, Stimulus

EconLog’s Arnold Kling asks a question that would fuel befuddled, and perhaps even angry, stares at the typical Manhattan or Beverly Hills cocktail party — but it’s a great question that, in fact, is not rhetorical:

Is it really the case that people want the government to create jobs? I have seen many progressives and pundits claim that people are angry about jobs, but I have not seen any people clamoring for the government to create jobs. (Emphais added – DBx)
