Winton Bates, Jim and the problem of deficits

I had to laugh. One of my old colleagues (old I hasten to add just because I have known him for a long time), Winton Bates, ran a post Can budget deficits cure the debt problem? reporting on a conversation he had had.

Now that conversation captured pretty well some of the things that I have been talking about. I leave it to you to make your own judgements.

Thanks for the link, Jim.

I hear via the grape vine that this other Jim (not his real name) enjoyed our chat and wants to talk to me again.

The link was a pleasure, Winton, and I look forward to reading more about the views of the other Jim.

I have been meaning for some time to run some posts linked to your material. There is some very thoughtful stuff there, and if you are like me having someone else pick your arguments up provides a further incentive to keep writing and thinking.
