I invite you to read this Forbes posting on Stupid Economics by Laurence Kotlikoff.
I don’t always agree with my dear colleague, Larry Kotlikoff, but this posting at Forbes is one that I can really get behind.
Our president needs to start listening to serious economists instead of acting solo as an autocrat.
This article is a two minute read that will make you smile regardless of whether you agree with all of the sentiments.
Larry is a serious scholar, of course, and his credentials include not only nineteen books, but also a stint on the Council of Economic Advisors under president Reagan.

Let me know if I’m being unfair. But I think it’s time to call this for what it is.
