Romer Offers More Complaints in the Economist

October 5, 2012

They write:

The Honduras government agreed in December to set up the transparency commission; it included George Akerlof, an economist, and Ong Boon Hwee, a former senior executive at Singapore Power. But it has yet to publish a decree to give the body legal clout. Mr Romer deplores what he calls “an overt act of deception”. In the meantime Mr Strong has struck his own deal, for a “less far-fetched” project that aims to create jobs and cheap housing.

As I wrote in my previous post, given the public facts, that first sentence is false. The Economist is doing itself a great disservice and misleading its readers by taking Romer’s word for it.

    Essays by Mencius Moldbug that are worth re-reading since Romer has provided us with proof that he is a pathetic little rent seeker. Whether the rent is prestige, money, or both.
