Interesting Reading

A blogger for the economist conducted an interesting interview with Bruce Bartlett, a former Reagan staffer. He can best be described as a post-Republican fiscal conservative. He does a good job of laying out the problems with the economic thinking on the right.

Unfortunately he also does a good job making the argument that the GOP has every incentive to tank the economy going into the 2012 elections, even if they win control of the House or Senate this year. He also thinks that the Republicans need to be given one last chance at misrule before they loose enough popular support to cause them to rethink their policies and commit themselves to responsible governing. Grim thoughts.
