The Economics Party

In one of those articles that would be even more hilarious if it didn’t make so much sense, Scott Adams proposes a new political party called the Economics Party. “You don’t even have to stop being a Democrat or Republican or whatever to join. The Economics Party won’t have its own candidates. All we’ll do is agree to vote for the candidate with the best long term economic policy, according to the consensus of leading economists.”

“The Economics Party would be committed to changing its policy recommendation whenever the facts warranted. We’re pro flip-flop when it makes sense. In other words, our brains function properly.”

As some of the comments point out, however, the problem would be getting the “leading economists” to agree.
