  • Contrary to what the Presidential candidates have been saying, Cornell's Robert Frank says, "the nation doesn’t actually face difficult economic choices." Inter alia, Frank advocates spending money to repair crumbling infrastructure and so create jobs, and "replacing the current income tax with a more steeply progressive consumption tax, making big-ticket spending much more expensive." [View news story]
