Economists for Obama
Interesting idea from Iglesias
Most notable, to me, is that the economists rate â€œwars and homeland securityâ€ as one of Obamaâ€™s strongest issues, whereas the conventional wisdom and the bulk of the public sees this as McCainâ€™s strong suit. Itâ€™s part of a larger trend Iâ€™ve noticed of economists, who appreciate the positive-sum nature of international relations, having generally sounder views on foreign policy than do â€œforeign policy experts,â€ who seem to me to tend in the direction of being captured by the military-industrial complex over time.
Interesting also that they ding Obama on trade.
