Via Scott Sumner's now famous blog (The Money Illusion, permalink on the side), I read the following post by Bryan Caplan:
And it confirmed everything I thought about free-market economists! They're cruel, evil sadists (and they smell)! Caplan describing his fellow free-marketeers:
"They cavalierly deny the reality of involuntary unemployment, and callously belittle the suffering of the unemployed".
More seriously, Caplan offers an interesting and worthwhile post on why unemployment might remain high despite the unemployed willing to work for lower pay. The problem is that I disagree with a lot of his economic reasoning but even more so with his proposed solutions to our unemployment issues.
