Words of wisdom!

1. Will Wilkinson on Bryan Caplan's crusade to "replentish the earth":

If Bryan really thinks rising education, wealth, and gender equality have somehow made us worse at evaluating the costs and benefits of children, he probably ought to turn in his economist card.

2. Tyler Cowen on the stimulus addicts:

I believe the "zero bound" is perhaps the single largest "red herring" in the economics profession today.
