Obama Among the Economists (updated)

Economists give Obama low marks. This is to be expected, since they generally know more about markets, profits, property, and civil government than Obama, his press, and the people who voted him in.

To make this an educational opportunity and not simply a condemnation, I recommend the following on economics:

1. Anything on the topic by Thomas Sowell.
2. George Gilder, Weath and Poverty.
3. Michael Novak, The Spirit of Democratic Capitalism.
4. Richard John Neuhaus, Doing Well and Doing Good.
