QOTD: “The inverse relationship between quantity demanded and price is the core proposition in economic science, which embodies the presupposition that human choice behavior is sufficiently rational to allow predictions to be made. Just as no physicist would claim that “water runs uphill,” no self-respecting economist would claim that increases in the minimum wage increase employment. Such a claim, if seriously advanced, becomes equivalent to a denial that there is even minimal scientific content in economics, and that, in consequence, economists can do nothing but write as advocates for ideological interests. Fortunately, only a handful of economists are willing to throw over the teaching of two centuries; we have not yet become a bevy of camp-following whores.” --James M. Buchanan, 1986 Nobel laureate in economics, writing in the Wall Street Journal on April 25, 1996 (via Carpe Diem)

Today's negative link--The Worst Link in the World--once again goes to Business Insider's Joe Weisenthal for

INTERVIEW: We Found A Congressman Who Actually Understands Economics

Who is that Congressman? Some might say he's Ron Paul, who has written books on economics and the Federal Reserve. But no!

It's Democratic hack Jerry Nadler!

When I ran on the Republican ticket for Manhattan Borough President in 2005 (a guaranteed losing proposition(, I lost to Scott Stringer, who had been mentored by Jerry Nadler. Both are Westside Manhattan Democrats.

Worst Line:

"On the deficit, he says what virtually no other politician will say, that it's too small."

This guy understands economics! (shaking head)

Second worst line:

"Given the unpopularity of more deficit spending, can the public ever be convinced we need to spend more?"

Memo to Joe Weisenthal: We borrow 46 cents of every dollar from China.

One comment:

"Joe, YOU don't understand economics."

Any Joe Weisenthal BI article is always a contender for The Worst Link in the World, but today we say that Joe "wins" again.
