Dear Economists, Why Doesn't the Left Have Economic Urban Legends


We all know the ones from the Right that have gotten insinuated into the public discourse: "Welfare queens", "family farms stolen by the estate tax". In the up-and-coming category, "The Fair Tax".

Where are the Left's?

Is it just Paul Krugman's infuriating intellectual honesty that is the dike?

Is it political donations envy or donation fear?

Why can't we have "Ferrari Mac Daddies"?

Can't you just see Max Baucus say, "We're not running the U.S. economy to spare the Ferrari Mac Daddies!"?

No? Me either. Why?
