David Frum: I'm Smarter Than Ron Paul


Ron Paul "is best known for his vehemently isolationist foreign policy views," says David Frum, an adviser to another presidential candidate. (So free trade, diplomacy, and opposition to sanctions and embargoes make you an "isolationist" — funny that Richard Cobden was called "the International Man" for holding exactly the same views.) Just as bad, according to Frum the Keynes lover, is that Paul's "core supporters also thrill to his self-taught monetary views, which amount to a rejection of everything taught by modern economists from Alfred Marshall to Milton Friedman." Geez, even Ronald Reagan had nice things to say about Ludwig von Mises. I wonder how much Mises Frum has read, or what he can tell us about Austrian business cycle theory. Oh, wait, I already know the answer.
