Literally When in Rome

I love Eschaton, the blog written by Duncan Black (aka “Atrios”). This is a post on driving and audience analysis.

This post, “Helicopter Drop,” on the European financial crisis, is more typical, though: “It really doesn’t have to be this way. Instead of giving more free money to the banksters and pretty pleasing them to lend it out to somebody else, you can just give people free money directly. Drop it from helicopters. Mail everybody a check. Add a zero on the end of everyone’s bank balance. Whatever. If you want there to be more money in the economy, give people more money. It really is that simple, or should be.”
