Wheelan for Congress

If you read this blog, it is a good bet that you have some interest in economics. Most likely, you would be delighted if members of Congress were a bit more committed to applying economic principles to public policy. If so, I have the candidate for you. Charles Wheelan, author of the book Naked Economics, is running for Congress in the 5th District of Illinois. This is Rahm Emanuel's seat, which will open up when he joins the Obama Administration.
