AN IMPORTANT REMINDER: Dear Shutdown Alarmists, the Economic Growth Already Happened. “Governments can’t stimulate economic growth with spending; rather their spending is only possible because of economic growth.

Figure that if there were a permanent cessation of a quarter of federal activity, the result would be trillions worth of extra resources for private actors to put to work.”

A man can dream.
