Laffer. You know, the guy who came up with the most discredited economic theory in modern times that just makes you want to…laugh. It’s a joke but not everyone gets it.
One of the enduring feats that always amazes me is the way in which liars, fools and manipulators, who are proven to be such, still manage to occupy some space in the public debate and rise from the dead. You remember Arthur Laffer, the man who peddled the phony and discredited “Laffer curve” arguing for lower taxes? Well, he’s baaccck…with another pile of manure to sell.
