In my latest essay, I look at the specifics of the President Bush’s economic proposals.

Overall, I am afraid that the President’s concept of the “ownership society” owes more to David Brooks than it does to Stephen Bainbridge. But the mainstream media’s characterization of the speech as short on specifics is 180 degrees wrong.

For Discussion. Apart from lack of specifics on where he would restrain Federal spending, where else did the President fail to spell out his economic plans?
