Greg Mankiw's Blog: Too Little Faith in People, Tax Policy Edition: "But that is not really the issue. If Paul had said "reasonable economists disagree, here are the arguments, and here is why I tend to favor one side rather than the other" I would not have objected. Instead, in his original column, he wrote as if there were no reasonable arguments for the policy pursued by the Bush administration, and he attributed the most vile motives to those who advanced the policy.
This episode illustrates a fundamental difference between Paul and me. I try not to assume the worst in other people, just because they disagree with me."
