Now that the GOP has gone all serious on us about the economy, it is interesting to see a substantive criticism of Paul Ryan's economic policies (and record) by a significant figure on the Right. David Stockman was Reagan's Budget Director and one of the fathers of "supply side" economics. And he is angry.This article is important, because we need to remember that there aren't just two alternatives. Each economic alternative (Obama's and Romney's) represents various possibilities from within the Right and the Left, and these should be addressed too.
