I can’t say that I’m big fan of the Keynesian “let’s spend our way out of this recession.” stimulus ideas. That’s partly due to my feeling that some people spending some money isn’t going to make a whole lot of difference.

I came across a couple of articles which expose downright silliness (if you believe the authors to be correct) with the Conservative’s economic plan.
