I’m not an economist. I’m just a Catholic schlub trying to figure out what God wants and do it. I couldn’t tell a Laffer curve from a Keynesian theory if my life depended on it.
But one thing I do know: Any defense of Ebenezer Scrooge as he was before his conversion is a apology for being a squeezing, wrenching, grasping, clutching, covetous old sinner and that’s all there is to it. I now know one thing about the Mise(r)s Institute: it defends profound evil. If you look to it as a moral guide, you are as endangered by the everlasting fires of hell as Scrooge was.
