Policies that Produce Real Growth

Dan Mitchell has another educational video produced by the Center for Freedom and Prosperity. He uses the Fraser Institute Economic Freedom of the World (Heritage has a similar analysis) to show the link between economic freedom and prosperity. He also notes that the US has been moving the wrong direction thanks to the “Bush-Obama spending binge” and cautions against continuing the “failed policies of the past”, a theme that needs repeating.

I also recommend the Anchor Rising blog, which offers some good background economics – the first part featuring 17 selections from important minds in economics, the second some background on the issues we are debating with the stimulus and bailout mentality.
