 Alexander J. Field : Critique of GOP's Economists Advice : Associated Press

Tuesday, Feb. 22, 2011

Alex Field, Orradre Professor of Economics, told the Associated Press that spending cuts should be pursued when economies are strong, not weak, as 150 economists signed a letter to House Speaker John Boehner urging cuts in federal spending.

He was quoted as saying he had "very little sympathy for the sentiments" in the letter. Cuts in spending would probably lead to higher unemployment rates, he predicted.

The Associated Press article was picked up by The Huffington Post as well.
