Political-Economic Common Sense with Dr Dan Mitchell
Sr. Dan Mitchell has been a very busy man. A UCLA professor of economics, Heritage Institute fellow, and CATO senior fellow, he teaches the wonders of Classical Production-Side economics over that of Keynesian economics. His videos, at the Center for Freedom and Prosperity, are very informative, and easy to follow. And if more people followed his lessons, we would be closer to getting ourselves our of the economic swamp we currently occupy.

His first point is that the larger the size of government, the greater the amount of unproductive spending, and the less ability of the economy grow.

Before I put out his Heritage paper, I will link to some of his wonderful videos on YouTube. They are easier to follow, and perhaps more entertaining than lengthy wording and charts.

Keynesian Economics Is Wrong: Bigger Gov't Is Not Stimulus. Here he explains why Keynesian economics is, and always will be, a failure. The number of failed lessons, US Great Depression, Argentina, 1990s Japan, should be more than enough for anyone, posessing common sense, to understand.
