Pethokoukis Web Picks

Guess what, Bush may have better economists than Obama. Plus, other fun stuff from around the web.


1) Greg Mankiw reveals the academic rankings of the Bush economists vs. the Obama economists. Shocker,  Austan Goolsbee is just #653 (with a bullet I am sure)? Don't the rankings count snappy talk-show patter?

2) Stan Collender (Capital Gains and Games) makes a great point about a Big 3 bailout. We didn't want to spend money on their cars, why  would we want to spend money on the companies that make the cars we don't want. (Full disclosure: The only new cars I have ever purchased have been Fords. Never a problem, my union brothers.)

3) Free Market Politics has a string of outstanding posts. I can't pick just one!
