Speculating on the Economic Cavalry, Part 2

As Americans stage what appears to be a fiscally-focused Great Awakening and the political tide turns toward the Republicans, the putative standard bearers of fiscal restraint, I have speculated on which economists will shape Republican thinking on economic policy should they take power in November and beyond. Yesterday in thw WSJ, an all-star cast of free market, fiscally conservative economists laid out a manifesto or sorts on where our nation's economic policy needs to go. Well worth reading. With the exception of Schultz, each of these men could play a roll in shaping the Republican policy agenda, and hopefully the nation's, for years to come.

While I agree that an official role for Mr. Schultz is highly unlikely in any event, his influence on policy and those who formally shape that policy hasn't diminished. His name headed that WSJ Op-Ed for a reason.

I agree. Didn't mean to disparge him - just meant that, well, he's old.
