Lawrence Kudlow is one of the most engaging, yet knowledgeable, economists writing for the general public today. Here's a report on his conversation with Nobel Prize winning economist Robert Mundell about how to stimulate the economy. It's really unfortunate that this sort of serious discussion can't be found in the MSM, but how could a journalism major have a serious discussion about economics?
The blog entry this link refers to will get pushed down by newer entries, so read it before it goes away. Kudlow's blog is must reading for people interested in real economics, as opposed to the inane, ignorant fluff that most of the media "report" on the subject.
