Disagreeable economists

By now you've probably heard about the "gas-tax holiday" proposal in the US that's being trumpeted by Senators Clinton and McCain. Apparently last week the PBS Newhour tried to find a economist to argue in favour of this proposal. They couldn't find anyone.

How's that for disagreeable economists.

I also think that Dilbert is defiantly on to something here

Actually, Dr. Bryan Caplan agrees with the gas-tax holiday, albeit unconventionally. See his latest piece in the NY Times.
