Economists in All 50 States Back Romney Economic Plan
Washington, D.C.: Economists for Romney (E4R) announced today that economists in all 50 states and the District of Columbia have now signed its statement in support of Governor Romney’s economic plan.
To date, 642 economists—including six Nobel laureates—have signed the statement. Many of these economists reside in battleground states such as Colorado (14), Florida (23), Michigan (20), North Carolina (23), Ohio (20), Pennsylvania (39), and Virginia (43).
Today’s announcement comes just hours after James Carter, E4R’s founder, drew attention to the criticism “Economists for Obama” lodged on its blog against President Obama’s economic policies. (No, that’s not a misprint.) The op-ed highlighting that criticism appears in today’s Investor’s Business Daily and is available at http://news.investors.com/ibd-editorials-on-the-right/090412-624441-obama-economy-doesnt-live-up-to-promise-of-hope-change.htm?p=full.
E4R’s statement and its signatories are available at www.EconomistsforRomney.com. 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.”
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.
Economists for Romney is an independent, voluntary association of economists who support Governor Romney’s economic plan for America. Economists for Romney is not an official arm of the 2012 Mitt Romney campaign, nor does it accept dues, fees, donations, or contributions.
