Fight Stimulus With... Stimulus


The libertarians at CATO took out a full page advertisement in the Times, Post and other papers yesterday opposing the stimulus package.

It ran the same day as this story in the Times about declining newspaper ad revenue. Which I suppose makes their point.

Though they're going to have to take out a lot of ads to save the newspaper business. I just got word that where I live, the Baltimore Examiner will be closing, though there's no notice on their website as I post this.

And boy, strange times when a newspaper ad for the general public can begin with a reference to the Keynesian school of economic thought.
