Why Conservatives Must Surrender on 'Redistribution'

Why Conservatives Must Surrender on ‘Redistribution’

This is an interesting essay by Bloomberg columnist Josh Barro on how GOP indifference to income inequality, among other things, contributed to the re-election of President Obama.  Quoting from the article,

“But the key problem in this debate isn’t that liberals’ ideas are bad, though many of them (especially on trade) are. It’s that conservatives have no serious proposals of their own on rising inequality.” 

H/T to my Baylor colleague, economist Steve Green, for pointing this article out to me.
