Economist On Crack

Recommended Posts

Comedy gold from the Daily Mail.

Professor McWilliams, who has also advised London Mayor Boris Johnson on housing, said last night he was ‘taking time off to deal with issues I have not had the chance to address fully when I have been in full-time work’.

It comes just two weeks before the launch of his book The Flat White Economy which tells how London swapped the City’s champagne and supercars lifestyle for bicycles and trendy flats.

Although to be fair, you'd probably have to be on crack to think Osborne's economic policies are worth cheerleading.

Probably makes its easier to accept macro-economics as a 'science'.

The less sober you are, the easier it is to accept most Economic theories core assumption.

For context he's the founder and head of the CEBR, the group who put together the 'fairhometax'-commissioned anti mansion tax report; one strongly supported by people who own an expensive property and enjoy the steady stream of other people's money (or several like the National Trust's Simon Jenkins).

Unimprovably stupid VI with lots of form. Wrong about everything for years and years like most of his profession.
