Economist support for Romney

Statement of support for Governor Romney from economists:

The plan is based on proven principles: a more contained and less intrusive federal government, a greater reliance on the private sector, a broad expansion of opportunity without government favors for special interests, and respect for the rule of law including the decision-making authority of states and localities.

Intrade odds of a Romny victory, 43%.

  1. Everyone has a great "plan".....until they get into office. The problem is that the president is not all powerful and is only one cog in the wheel of government. Obama, Romney, can only do so much. Lets remember that politicians are also rational actors too. They all get elected and help themselves their friends and family by passing self serving laws. OR they dont care one way or the other about the laws and vote based on which lobbyist or group pays them the most money. I'm a pessimist when it comes to government.....
