Economists Against Obama

A list recently released by the McCain campaign. It includes five Harvard professors.

Some blog readers may ask, why didn't I sign? I am not particularly fond of Obama's proposed tax hikes or his apparent retreat from free trade. (See this article of mine.) But I thought the statement in the group letter that "his proposals run a high risk of throwing the economy into a deep recession" was a tad too hyperbolic for my tastes.

Update: A reader alerts me to a longer list of pro-McCain, anti-Obama economists here.
