Jim Webb’s Economics, In His Own Words

Jim Webb doesn’t have a Ph.D. in economics or public policy, but he’s done something thousands of academic economists and policy scholars have not: gotten an op-ed piece published in the famously conservative Wall Street Journal, which you can check out here.

It’s an interesting article that perhaps we’ll comment on in more detail in the near future. For now we’ll confine ourselves to the observation that it’s a sad commentary when the Wall Street Journal is more open to Webb’s views than the Times-Dispatch ever was during the campaign.
