400 Economists Back Romney Economic Plan

Washington, D.C.:  Over 400 economists ­– including five Nobel laureates (Gary Becker, Robert Lucas, Robert Mundell, Edward Prescott, and Myron Scholes) signed a statement in support of Mitt Romney’s bold economic plan for America, Economists for Romney announced today.

The statement and its signatories are available at The statement begins, “We enthusiastically endorse Governor Mitt Romney’s economic plan to create jobs and restore economic growth while returning America to its tradition of economic freedom.”

In addition to the statement released today, James Carter, founder of Economists for Romney writes on National Review Online, “The statement…touts Governor Romney’s reliance on ‘proven principles’ and…details the many ways in which the Administration’s economic policies have failed America.”

The stakes are high and the choice is clear this election year. Bold ideas and courageous actions are needed to reverse the damage done to the U.S. economy by the Obama administration.

The Economists for Romney statement concludes, “In sum, Governor Romney’s economic plan is far superior for creating economic growth and jobs than the actions and interventions President Obama has taken or plans to take in the future. This November, voters will make a fundamental choice between differing visions of America’s economic future.”

Economists for Romney enjoys wide support. Many of the economists signing the statement have received the profession’s highest honors for their academic work. All have championed economic freedom during their illustrious careers, with some advising U.S. administrations for nearly a half-century.
