In case you missed it, in a recent op-ed, American Enterprise Institute (AEI) president Arthur Brooks highlights the growing consensus that stimulus spending has a minimal and short-lived effect on the economy.
"Americans know in their hearts that they could drop the needle almost anywhere on Obama’s Big Government Spending Album and get the same basic results: lots of spending with little to show for it.”
Brooks stresses that the solution to our country's financial woes is not government, but more economic freedom. In fact, Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney mentioned Arthur Brooks and the need for economic freedom in his speech yesterday at the Clinton Global Initiative. Watch here:
Arthur Brooks is the president of the American Enterprise Institute and the author of the New York Times best-seller The Road to Freedom: How to Win the Fight for Free Enterprise (Basic Books, 2012). He can be reached through [email protected] (202.419.5213).
